REPORTS 

APPRECIATION COMMITTEE 

It is with great joy that the Appreciation Committee commends the 
35 churches in the Green River Baptist Association for their special interest 
and support in 2001. Special thanks must be given to every person who sup- 
ported the Association by serving as an officer or working on a committee or 
council under the strong leadership and encouragement of Billy Honeycutt 
and the faithful assistance of Teresa Sams. Without their support and guid- 
ance many of the planned activities, programs and ministries could not have , 
been accomplished. 

With thankful hearts, let's recall several highlights and accomplish- 
ments during the year: 

1 . Every church in the association gave financial support to the 2001 
budget. 

2. Because the churches gave to the North Carolina Missions Offer- 
ing, the Association received a portion of the offering for Resort 
Area Missions. 

3. Special thanks to all who shared in the Scholarship Fund. Every 
Student who applied for help this year received $435.00. 

4. The Nannie Newsome Offering helped to reduce the non-interest 
loan for the motel property and to provide for the Lake Lure Sum 
mer Resort Ministry. 

5. Several individuals pledged to give two hundred dollars per year 
for three years to help reduce the debt on the property.

to the groups from various churches who assisted Angie and Tina 

with the ministry. 

7. Special praise goes to the fifty people from the Association who 
shared in so many ways at the Mountain State Fair in Asheville. 
Since their ministry date was September 1 1 and because of the 
national crisis the volunteers were able to share their faith in 
remarkable ways. 

8. The Rest Stop Ministry continues to bless many who stop there 
and many who volunteer. Not only do we thank those who 
manned the Rest Stop but appreciation must be given to the 
volunteers who kept the surroundings clean and cared for, 

9. Several men volunteered their time to replace a roof on the Bible- 
way Fellowship Church in Spindale. 

10. The Hispanic Mission now has its own church building. Special 
thanks go to those who contributed money; those who attended 
the fund-raising banquets and the churches who welcomed the 
Pastor, Jairo Contreras, to speak about their growing church. 

1 1 . Thanks to Sulphur Springs and Fellowship for hosting the Quar- 
terly Association Meeting last year.

DIRECTOR OF MISSIONS 

This year was marked by the on going mission and ministry of the 
Association remaining strong. I appreciate the support of our churches dur- 
ing this year. 

The Hispanic Mission made a significant step forward this year as 
they purchased a building on Oakland Roadwhere they meet for worship, 
study and fellowship. This has allowed them to expand their ministry to the 
Hispanic population of our county. Rev. Jairo Contreras is providing Godly 
and capable leadership. Appreciation is expressed to Adaville Baptist 
Church for allowing the Mission to used their facilities for many months. 
Continue praying for the Mission and for Rev. Contreras. 

Response to the Mountain State Fair Ministry was incredible this 
year. You supplied clothes, hygiene kits, made bears and salvation bracelets 
as well as 50 people going to the Fair on our assigned day, September 1 1, 
2001. Yes, we were there the day of the events that unfolded in New York 



63 



and Washington. It gave us many opportunities to counsel with fair workers 
about the Lord and what they were feeling. Thank you for your support of 
this ministry. We will be going again next year. 

The Christian Character Scholarship Committee granted six scholar- 
ships this past summer to students beginning their college career. Funds 
from individuals and from the Trust Fund with the North Carolina Baptist 
Foundation were used in granting these scholarships. Thank you for your 
support of this ministry. 

Miss Angie Brooks and Miss Tina Brooks, sisters and members of 
Green Hill Baptist Church, led the ministry this summer. This ministry of 
the association has been offered each summer for over 25 years. Your 
prayers and supplying items for the Kid's Fun Bags enriched this ministry. 
Thank you for your support of this ministry. 

The Rest Stop ministry grows in use and appreciation by the travel- 
ing public. I appreciate the support of churches by hosting this ministry and 
for those who have done some work around the building at different times 
during the year. Over the course of the year, some of the travelers took time 
to write a very heart felt note about their stop at the building. It is gratifying 
to see how God uses this facility to minister to travelers. Thank you for your 
support of this ministry. 

The purchase of the motel property last year allowed us to do some 
ministry this year. Churches sponsored car washes at the building as well as 
the Evangelism Committee sponsoring one. For a period of time one of the 
rooms was used by Crossnore School as a collection point for items they use 
in their ministry. I appreciate the individuals and churches that have made 
contributions this year on the bank loan debt. This money is used to pay the 
principal and budgeted Association money is applied to the interest. There is 
still opportunity to have individuals and churches commit to give $200 per 
year for a couple of years. Thank you for your support of this ministry. 
Also, the support of the Association budget was the highest ever by our 
churches and all churches contributed. Thank you for your support. 

During the year our Minister's Conference enjoyed a delicious meal 
and rich fellowship at our meetings. This is available to all of our ministers 
and they are urged to participate. 

During the year there were some pastoral changes as some moved to 
other churches, some resigned and one retired. The services and resources of 
the Association are available to assist our churches as they seek a pastor. 
Thanks to those churches that seek that assistance. 

Thank you for your support of the Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Rev. Billy Honeycutt

SOUTH RUTHERFORD HISPANIC BAPTIST MISSION 

"CRISTO VIVE" 

REPORT FOR JANUARY - OCTOBER 2001 

Since January the mission has moved into their own facility on Oak- 
land Road. The mission has been feeling the privilege to gather all together 
in Jesus' name and give thanks and Glory to the Lord. We are able to keep 
more families involved in their spiritual growth. The mission is conducting 
all the ministries with the people that have been reached since the beginning 
of the mission. They are bearing fruit for God. 

We have established Sunday School for: adults (40 average), youth 
(15 average) and children (15 average). Our attendance for Sunday service is 
85 (average) and Wednesday service is 50 (average). During the week the 
mission focuses on visitation, counseling, helping to meet social needs and 
outreach. 

At the mission during the week the following activities take place: 
Monday: Lady's Bible study (15 average), Wednesday: Mid-week service 
(50 average), Thursday: Discipleship (5 average), Friday: Youth service (15 
average). 

During the year the mission celebrated 2 baptisms, a Children's 
dedication service with 5 children involved, 2 weddings, 1 funeral, 1 seminar 
for couples, 25 decisions to accept Christ. 

The mission is in need of a pastor's study and storage building. The 
mission has a debt of $75,000 with the first yearly payment of $10,000 due 
December 7, 2001. 

As you can see our dedication to God is not just in the church but in 
the outside world. We ask you to keep praying because all of this could not 
be happening without your prayers and your support. God Bless you. 

Rev. Jairo Contreras, pastor 
South Rutherford Hispanic Baptist Mission 

CHRISTIAN CHARACTER SCHOLARSHIP FUND 

Because of your strong support, the Christian Character Scholarship Commit- 
tee was able to grant scholarships to six high school students this past year. 
Those receiving scholarships were: Casey Anders, Second Baptist, Allison 
Heatherly, Spindale First, Jessica Moss, Forest City First, Dustin Biggerstaff, 
Green Hill, DeAnna Gouge, Montford Cove, Leslie Greene, Sulphur Springs. 
The goal of the committee is to have 100 people make a $25.00 contribution 
once a year to this project. It is encouraging to see students make applications 
for this scholarship because of the Christian character they have demon- 
strated in their personal lives. This is a one time scholarship given to recog- 
nize the Christian character that students have exemplified during their high 
school years and to help them begin their college years. Thank you for your

support of this fund and for encouraging others in your church to participate.

Thank you for your investment in the lives of those reached in VBS this year. 
The rewards are eternal. From the 13 churches who reported, there were 23 
who came to know Jesus as their personal Savior this summer. There were a 
total of 1,342 students enrolled with an average attendance of 1,053. 

RESORT AREA MISSIONS 

This ministry of the Association is conducted from Memorial Day 
weekend to Labor Day weekend. This year, led by Angie and Tina Brooks, 
the ministry was effective in four campgrounds and in a motel setting. Ser- 
vices are held on Saturday evening and Sunday morning each weekend. At- 
tendance varies at each service and week by week. Angie and Tina, mem- 
bers of Green Hill Baptist Church, provided worship services that included 
music, prayers and a message from the Scriptures. They both did an excel- 
lent job in being prepared for the services and in speaking in churches. They 
also found great reception among campers and people in Chimney Rock vil- 



66 



lage as they distributed the Kids Fun Bags. These bags contain various items 
that are child oriented for them to have some fun as well as a gospel tract that 
introduces them to the gospel. So many mission groups, Sunday School 
classes and individuals donated the items for the bags and that is greatly ap- 
preciated. Angie and Tina distributed some 600 bags this summer. Also, 
some of our churches came and led services with Angie and Tina. You can 
see from the report below the sources for funding this ministry. You are in- 
volved in this mission by your support of the Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Rev. Billy Honeycutt

INSTITUTIONAL REPORTS 

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES OF NORTH CAROLINA 

Baptist Children's Homes serves record number of children. In 2000, 
Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina served a record 2,000 children 
and more than 1,600 families statewide. BCH operates residential campuses 
in Thomasville, Pembroke, Kinston and Clyde, a maternity home in Ashe- 
ville, a teen mother/baby home in Lenior, value change homes for boys and 
girls in Franklin and Asheville and for girls in Lenoir, a wilderness camp for 
boys in Cameron, emergency care cottages at each of the residential cam- 
puses and in Waynesville, and amodel day care in Thomasville. 

Children tell their stories during Baptist State Convention report. 

Standing ovations, applause and heartfelt hugs greeted the children and staff 
at their 30-minute presentation during the 2000 Baptist State Convention in 
Winston- Salem. More than 130 BCH children, approximately 4,500 messen- 
gers attending the Tuesday afternoon session. Messengers heard the special 
testimonies afrom Citadel graduating senior and former Broyhill Home resi- 
dent Jason Davis and Hannah Adams' mother Donna. Hannah has partici- 
pated in both the 2000 and 2001 BCH Respite Camp for Developmental^ 
Disable Adults. 

Jason Davis thanks messengers. Jason was featured in the 1995 Baptist 
Children's Homes report to the convention. At that time he was 17 and 
dreamed of a career in the Air Force. During his testimony at the 2000 con- 
vention, Jason appeared in the full dress uniform of The Citadel. He re- 
minded messengers that if it had not been for their care and support he could 
have never realized his dream. He told messengers that if it had not been for 
their care and support he could have never realized his dream. He told mes- 
sengers that he credited them for the opportunities he has known. Jason said 
he plans to always come back to visit the children and just as others gave to 
help him, he would give to help the other children who would come to BCH 
after him. Upon his graduation from The Citadel in May 2001, Jason Davis 
was commissioned as a Lieutenant in the United States Air Force. 

Donna Adams claims Developmental Disabilities Ministry an answer to 
prayer. The final testimony of the BCH presentation was not given by a 
child, but by a mother. Donna Adams of laurinburg strained to maintain her 
composure as she shared how BCH's new ministry for developmentally dis- 
abled adults was the answer to her prayers. Adam's daughter Hannah suf- 
fered brain damage as an infant. Today, Hannah is a beautiful young woman. 
Donna said she is comforted in knowing North Carolina Baptists and the 
BCH would be there as her family plan for Hannah's future. She thanked 
messengers on behalf of other parents and families of developmentally dis- 
abled children for their support and commitment to this ministry.

North Carolina Baptists reach $1,000,000 Thanksgiving Offering goal. 

Because of the support of Baptist churches all across North Carolina, Baptist 
Children's Homes met the 2000 Thanksgiving Offering goal of $1,000,000! 
The goal was record for the agency. BCH president Michael C. Blackwell 
said he was "enormously gratified at this outpouring response." Baptist Chil- 
dren's Homes is grateful to all North Carolina Baptists who committed them- 
selves to help meet this challenging goal. 

First Baptist Church of Salisbury sets goal they couldn't reach. Interim 
pastor Dr. Dale Steel said collecting a church record of $18,300 for the 2000 
Thanksgiving Offering was fun. Dr. Steel recounted the meetings that led to 
setting the church's goal at 1% of the total BCH goal of $1 million or 
$10,000. In 1999, the church gave approximately $3,500. The church's 
leadership decided to set a goal they could not reach on their own. Leading 
with prayer and a commitment to meet their goal, the church watched as they 
passed their goal and reached their record amount. One month after receiv- 
ing the record Thanksgiving Offering, the First Baptist Church of Salisbury 
collected the third-largest Lottie Moon ingathering in 1 1 years. Dr. Steel 
credits the church's vision, enthusiasm and determination to do their part for 
missions as being the key to their success. 

BCH breaks ground on two new DDM homes, and dedicates new chil- 
dren's cottage in Marshville. In June, Baptist Children's Homes broke 
ground for two new group homes for developmentally disabled adults in 
Winston-Salem. The homes — Davis House and Hinkle House — are being 
built adjacent to BCH's Baptist House at Bethabara and will open in early 
2002. The R. P and Ella Mae Stegall Home was dedicated August 19, 2001. 
The new group home is located in Marshville and provides residential care 
for nine boys. 

New Millennium Families study guide offered to churches. The study 
guide to accompany Dr. Michael C. Blackwell's book New Millennium 
Families is being made available to churches for group Bible studies this fall. 
Dr. Blackwell believes BCH can help strengthen families in north Carolina 
Baptist churches and is committed to providing the necessary resources. Dr. 
Blackwell's new book, A Place for Miracles, is a history of Baptist Chil- 
dren's Homes, and will be available in late 2001. 

BCH anticipates another record Thanksgiving Offering. The 2001 
Thanksgiving Offering goal is $1,100,000. This represents a $100,000 in- 
crease over last year's record-setting amount. The number may seem enor- 
mous, but there is an enormous need. Children and families turn to BCH 
broken, battered and burdened. But with the help of North Caroina Baptists, 
BCH shows them God's love. BCH is counting on North Carolina Baptist 
churches to help meet this important goal during this time of economic un- 
certainty. Call 1-800-476-3669, ext 1209 to order promotional material, the 

72 



new Thanksgiving Offering video, last year's BCH Convention Presentation 
video or to request a speaker to tell the BCH story in person. 

The support of North Carolina Baptists through the Thanksgiving Offering, 
Cooperative Program, church-designated and individual gifts, memorials, 
honors, and estate gifts enables us to fulfill our missions statement: "helping 
hurting children... healing broken families. 

BCH is grateful for North Carolina Baptists' prayers and support.

Board of Trustees 

BAPTIST FOUNDATION OF NORTH CAROLINA 

The mission of North Carolina Baptist Foundation since its inception in 1920 
has been to assist the Convention and its institutions and agencies in increas- 
ing an awareness among North Carolina Baptists of Christian estate steward- 
ship principles as a means of financially undergirding churches, institutions 
and mission endeavors on a permanent basis. The uniqueness of the minis- 
tries and services provided by the institutions and General Board staff merits 
increased financial support. The Foundation accomplishes these objectives 
by offering assistance in estate planning counsel, Will preparation, planned 
giving, charitable remainder trusts, endowment funds and church fund man- 
agement. 

During 2000, the Foundation provided assistance to individuals in establish- 
ing 30 endowment funds and 18 charitable remainder trusts totaling $1 .9 mil- 
lion and received $3.6 million in contributions to existing endowments all of 
which will ultimately benefit countless Baptist causes on a permanent basis. 
Programs were provided for 364 churches and associations during the year to 
promote Make Your Will Month, Christian estate stewardship, and church 
fund management. Over $4.6 million from churches and institutions came 
under management to enhance numerous ministries including scholarships, 
building funds, cemetery funds, benevolence funds, general operating funds 
and other various mission causes. With a total of $10.1 million in contribu- 
tions, it was the best year ever eclipsing the previous high of $9.3 million 
recorded in 1999. 

The Foundation employs professional money managers to invest these funds 
according to an investment policy adopted by its Board. Four investment 
pools are offered: a growth fund, a balanced fund, an income fund and a 
fixed income fund. The Foundation uses the services of Salomon Smith 
Barney to help select top money managers and evaluate performance. As of 

73 



December 31, 2000, the Foundation held $97.4 million under management. 
This is an increase of more than $4.1 million over 1999. 

The Foundation also experienced a record year in distributions in 2000. The 
previous high in distributions was 1999, with $5.3 million distributed to char- 
ity and individuals. In the year 2000, our distribution totaled 9.1 million dol- 
lars, with charity receiving $6.7 million and individuals, through trusts, re- 
ceiving $2.4 million. During the 81 -year history of The North Carolina Bap- 
tist Foundation, Inc., $18,5 million has been distributed to individuals and 
$32.4 million to Baptist churches, institutions and mission causes for a grand 
historical total of $47.1 million.

BAPTIST HOSPITALS OF NORTH CAROLINA 

''Touching Lives With Hope " 
Meeting the Challe n ges of Health Ca re 

Hospital Focused On Partnerships In Healing 

"We desire to build a hospital to bring the healing art more defi- 
nitely under the dominion of the Great Healer," Baptist Hospital's founding 
commission penned these words in 1921, and this partnership in healing has 
been our defining purpose. Our Christian heritage remains the foundation of 
Baptist Hospital and undergirds our daily commitment to provide compas- 
sionate, state-of-the-art medical care to those we serve. The Christian faith is 
truly the "soul of our institution." 
School Of Pastoral Care 

The mission of the School of Pastoral Care at Baptist hospital is: To 
provide ministries of growth, hope, and healing in the Spirit of Christ. We 
are thankful that North Carolina Baptists are a significant partner in this mis- 
sion, helping us bring hope to thousands of people each year. 

The Department of Chaplaincy and Pastoral Education provided 
ministry during the past year through more than 61,000 pastoral visits, and 
worship services every Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The de- 
partment's Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) program received a 10-year 
accreditation from the Association of Clinical Pastoral Education site review 
team. Fifty-eight students received training in one of the largest and finest 
CPE programs in America. 

The Department of Pastoral Counseling, CareNet, Inc. continues to 
develop its ministries. Rev. Steve Scoggin became the director of the sys- 
tem's newest center, the East Carolina Counseling Centers, Inc., in 
Greenville, N.C. CareNet's counseling centers provided more than 25,500 
hours of compassionate pastoral counseling in 17 locations across the state 
during the year. It is the largest pastoral counseling system in the nation. 
Thanks to N.C. Baptists, free or reduced rate counseling is made available to 

74 



lower income people. 

The Center for Congregational Health, Inc. continues to assist 
churches in becoming healthier communities of faith. The Center provides 
consultation to 25 congregations a month. Over 600 church leaders received 
training in educational events conducted by the Center during the past year. 
These include the Young Leaders Program for ministers under age 40, and 
Intentional Interim Ministry training. Thanks to N.C. Baptists, the Center 
receives essential support for its ministries. This support pays for initial con- 
sultation for all Baptist churches, and provides subsidies for churches and 
ministers who need special financial assistance. 

The Department of Church and Community Relations continues to 
serve as a liaison between the Hospital and churches of the Baptist State 
Convention. The department's director, Rev. Paul Mullen, provided ministry 
through 150 requests for assistance with obtaining medical care or concerns 
about medical bills. More than $65,000 was provided to N.C. Baptist minis- 
ters and their families by the 25% subsidy for their hospital bills. A variety 
of benevolent ministries was also coordinated, primarily the Baptist Benevo- 
lent Care Fund. 
Baptist Benevolent Care Fund 

North Carolina Baptists, through the Mother's Day Offering, opened 
their hearts to patients in financial need and gave $560,624 in 2000 for the 
compassionate mission of benevolent care at Baptist hospital. All of these 
funds were used to pay the hospital bills of patients in financial need. The 
fund helps patients who "fall between the cracks," making too much for gov- 
ernment assistance but not enough to pay for healthcare insurance. They are 
deeply thankful to N.C. Baptists for this gracious witness to God's love. As 
one recipient said, "God smiled on us through the Baptists of North Caro- 
lina." Her son is a 1 3 yearOold cancer patient. 
Additional Highlights At North Carolina Baptist Hospital

its status from the National Cancer Institute. The Comprehensive Cancer 
Center is one of only 37 such centers in the nation, and is the only one in 
western North Carolina, it includes Prostate and Breast Cancer Centers of 
Excellence. 

Medical Center Earns Recognition for Trauma Care - Baptist Hos- 
pital, a Level One Trauma Center, received verification in both adult and pe- 
diatric trauma services in February 2001 by the American College of Sur-

A Closing Word From The President 

The values of cur Christian faith are the guiding principles of the 
North Carolina Baptist Hospital mission. We are strongly committed to be a 
place of healing, bridging compassionate and respectful care in the Spirit of 
Christ with the best of medical science and technology. This commitment 
reflects our heritage and shapes our vision for the future. We are thankful to 
North Carolina Baptists for being our partner in this healing mission. We 
were created to serve and care for people in times of their greatest healthcare 
needs, and we are here for you.

BAPTIST RETIREMENT HOMES OF NORTH CAROLINA 

Proudly serving older adults since 1951 

What is Baptist Retirement Homes? Founded in 1951, Baptist Retirement 
Homes of North Carolina, Inc. (BRH) is one of North Carolina's most re- 
spected providers of long-term care. With four retirement communities 
throughout the state, BRH provides all levels of care for Older Adults, in- 
cluding special programs for conditions such as Alzheimer's Disease. The 
Homes' new continuing care retirement community called The Gardens of 
Taylor Glen is under development near Charlotte. BRH also owns and oper- 
ates a home health program that provides certified nursing and therapy ser- 
vices to homebound individuals. Baptist Retirement Homes is a not-for- 
profit organization affiliated with the Baptist State Convention of North 
Carolina. 

Are residents of Baptist Retirement Homes primarily Baptists? At the 

Brookridge Community, 60% of the resident population is Baptist. About 
80% of the resident population of the Western North Carolina Baptist Home 
is Baptist. The Taylor House and the Hamilton Baptist Home are primarily 
composed of Baptist residential populations. 

76 



What is the cost of services? Are financial resources available for those 
who cannot pay? Fees vary according to facilities and the level of care cho- 
sen or required by residents. A full schedule of fees for each facility is avail- 
able upon request. There are no entrance fees associated with any of the 
health-related facilities owned and operated by Baptist Retirement Homes. 
The Hamilton Baptist Home and The Taylor House are among the few not- 
for-profit, church -related, long-term care facilities in North Carolina with no 
financial requirements for admission. Contributions received from the Bap- 
tist State Convention Cooperative Program, the North Carolina Offering for 
Older Adults, and from local Baptist churches across the state are used exclu- 
sively to help BRH provide care for those Older Adults in either assisted liv- 
ing or nursing care who are unable to pay the full cost of the services they 
need. 

Does the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina support Baptist 
Retirement Homes? Baptist Retirement Homes is affiliated with the Baptist 
State Convention of North Carolina but is a separate and distinct corporate 
entity. Messengers of the churches that compose the Baptist State Conven- 
tion elect BRH Board members. In 1999, funds received from the Conven- 
tion Cooperative Program, the North Carolina Offering for Older Adults, and 
local Baptist churches totaled approximately $1.6 million. All of those mon- 
ies are being used to support Older Adults living in assisted living or nursing 
care who lack sufficient financial resources to pay for the care they receive. 

Where are BRH facilities located and what services do they offer? The 

Brookridge Retirement Community in Winston- Salem is a 44-acre continu- 
ing care retirement community, established in 1989. Brookridge offers its 
300 residents independent and assisted living and nursing care services. Ac- 
commodations range from garden homes to apartments to assisted living and 
nursing care at the Prince Nursing Center. The Brookridge Transitional Care 
Unit opened in 1995, offering post-acute medical care on site. Home health 
care is also available on site through In Home Care, Inc., a Baptist Retire-

COUNCIL ON CHRISTIAN HIGHER EDUCATION 
Baptist State Convention of North Carolina 

When it comes to colleges, "one size does not fit all. " There is a difference. 

North Carolina has 117 post-secondary institutions. Some are classified as 
community or technical colleges. Others are public, while some are private. 
Some are Bible colleges, one is a seminary and one is a junior college. 

Some have large campuses, while others have modest facilities. Some have 
major sports teams, while others offer intramural events. Some have signifi- 
cant endowments, while others struggle to stay open. Some have govern- 
ment support, while others depend upon private support. 

North Carolina Baptist Colleges and universities are unique. They are insti- 
tutions we trust and support. They represent places that share our core belief 
that one's education should involve the heart, soul and mind. This belief is 
not shared by every institution in our state. Some are not allowed to invoke 
the name of God, neither are they allowed to worship God. North Carolina 
Baptist colleges, however, are different. 

The colleges and universities associated with the Baptist State Convention of 
North Carolina affirm their faith in God and acknowledge their Baptist heri- 

79 



tage. Students on our campuses are challenged to develop their faith through 
Bible study, worship, ministry and mission opportunities in addition to their 
academic studies. 

When a professor on one of our campuses was asked, "Why have you chosen 
to be a part of this facility? He responded, "Because I am free to mention the 
name of Jesus on this campus." 

When it comes to colleges, "one size does not fit all." 

Students in our churches struggle when they are deciding which college or 
university to attend, it is a decision that will follow them the rest of their 
lives, if they choose a school where faith is left out of their educational ex- 
perience, they will graduate with degrees without the benefit of their faith 
being challenged. 

Thank you North Carolina Baptists for your continued support of Christian 
higher education at Campbell, Chowan, Gardner- Webb, Mars Hill, Meredith, 
Wake Forest and Wingate.

their congregation to build a church. Reverend Richard Bass retired on 
December 31, 2000 after sewing for 34 years, He was presented a re- 
tirement gift from the congregation. In fall of 2000 the sanctuary was 
renovated. The choir loft and altar were remodeled. The church pur- 
chased a new organ for the sanctuary. A monument was placed in the 
old cemetery to mark the sacred ground. Mary Lois Geer remains dili- 
gent in her mission work. She went to the Czech Republic to work with 
the children of missionaries during train seminars. She also went to the 
Ukraine on an evangelistic mission trip distributing Bibles printed in 
Ukrainian and Russian. They also distributed eyeglasses. In May a play- 
ground was built for the children of the congregation to enjoy.

gan his ministry last November 1, 2000. He is leading the church to a 
closer walk with the Lord through Bible studies and mission work. 
Through mission work the church has been helping make repairs and 
additions to homes of the people in need. The church seems to be grow- 
ing spiritually. 

Piney Knob 

Piney Knob had a very prosperous year again this year. Our youth min- 
ister, Kaleb Johnson, has been with us a year now. Kaleb is very dedi- 
cated to our youth. Our church has had positive change and growth in 
our youth department since God sent him to Piney Knob. Kaleb and the 
youth remodeled the basement and transformed it into a youth center 
with a stage, new furniture, and sound system. They've had Lock-ins, a 
ski trip, a youth rally, went shopping and to play laser tag, went to 
Carowinds, and went to South Mountain Camp, to mention only a few. 
Kaleb has just recently moved to our community from Ellenboro to be 
closer to us. He is very loyal and all the youth know he really cares and 
is there for them at any time. We are all very thankful for Kaleb and 
what he has done for us. 

"Parents Night Out" was a huge success again this year. Once a 
month parents may leave their children at the Church for devotion, 
games, crafts, and food from 6:00-9:00 pm while they go out or just 
take a break. This is not just for Piney Knob members but is a ministry 
to reach all families in the community. 

In the missions field Piney Knob collected offerings for the Annie 
Armstrong Easter Offering, the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, and 
Foreign Missions. We bought and collected Ensure for community 
members and Hospice patients. We collected pots, pans, and cooking 
utensils, and baking sheets for PATH. We sent pens to the women's 
prison and collected shoe boxes for Samaritan's Purse. We have a con- 
tinuous food basket set out to collect food for needy families. The Ac- 
teens, Erica Atchley, Sheena Greene, and Misty Greene, completed 
their Missionsquest steps and received certificates and awards during 
the Acteen Recognition Service in September. 

The Brotherhood began a new ministry in our church. Several men, 
with financial help from our deacon ministry, are helping families in 

87 



desperate need. They replaced a floor for one family in our community. 
May God bless this ministry. 

A new church van was purchased, two new doors were installed in 
the educational building, new windows were installed in front of the 
church, installed a gas heater in the Pastor's study, enlarged Pastor's 
study and redecorated, installed new windows on first floor educational 
department, installed two new heat pumps, rewired electrical boxes on 
outside of church and installed new boxes, poured concrete around air 
conditioner units at back of church. 

Pastor Tim Mann led Piney Knob in a powerful revival in Septem- 
ber. Our Church was Blessed and many lives were changed throughout 
this week. 

This year the Church was left $1,200,000.00 from the Bill Hensley 
Estate. 

We'd especially like to say "Thank You, God", for the two years 
our Pastor, Greg Green has been with us. We have seen him grow and 
seen God's work through him in so many ways. We know it was no co- 
incidence that he came to Piney Knob. 

Pleasant Grove 

This year has been the year for youth at Pleasant Grove. Our Wednes- 
day night and Sunday night program for our youth has grown to the ex- 
tent we had to purchase a 1 5 passenger van to help with transportation. 
In August, we added a first-Sunday-of-the-month Children's Church 
which is growing and God is blessing our efforts. Praise God for His 
children! This past summer, one of our youth, Dustin Dinatali, was a 
missionary to Mexico and came back "on fire" for what God is doing 
through "Acquire the Fire". The children are showing us how to do the 
Great Commission. 

Pleasant Hill 

The church continued the radio outreach on WWOL each Sunday morn- 
ing at 9:30 am. John Taylor and Glen Hill were elected as deacons. The 
youth participated in many activities including a fall festival at the Ur- 
ban farm; "Operation Christmas Child" shoe box program; bowling at 
Autumn Lanes; G.A.'s to South Mountain Baptist Camp; Greenville 
Braves baseball; Thanksgiving meal for senior citizens; Christmas play; 
and Vacation Bible School, as well as other worship service and fellow- 
ship activities. A junior choir was reorganized. Structural reinforcement 
work was completed on the foundation of the church building and im- 
provements were made to the kitchen in the parsonage. Rev. Blair Har- 
vey did not accept the full-time pastorate but agreed to continue as in- 
terim through December, 2000. Rev. Jim Cathey served as interim from 
January through July 2001. Some speakers during the year included 
Rev. Curtis Gilstrap, Rev. Richard Bass, and Rev Donald Owens.

Seow En Yeo, and Swee Fong Chin represented Harvester Baptist Mis- 
sion of Singapore in a mission emphasis at the church. Rev. William 
Swink from Central Baptist Church, Aiken, S.C. was elected pastor on 
July 1, 2001. He accepted the call. Pastor William and his wife Sandra 
were welcomed into the Pleasant Hill community the first week of Au- 
gust as he began to serve as pastor on August 5. Several members of the 
church participated in the GRBA mission project at the Mountain State 
Fair. 

Rock Springs 

We stalled the year with a Brunswick Stew dinner and enjoyed the af- 
ternoon filled with good music. Dr. Joel Fisher preached his final mes- 
sage on November 26, 2000. We wish him well. The church called Dr. 
Herman Nodine as pastor December 10,2000. Fie and his wife came to 
us from Saluda, N.C. The church sanctuary was filled with poinsettias 
December 1 0, 2000 in memory of Mrs. Ella Mae Whiteside. We had 
our annual Christmas dinner December 16 and our Christmas program 
and exchanging of gifts on December 17. We started the new year, 
2001, with our "Ladies Nigh Out" January 16. All of our ladies at- 
tended. We enjoyed good food and good fellowship. Our church family 
held a hotdog lunch for our youth before they went bowling in the after- 
noon. In February we were truly blessed with the gift of an organ by the 
wonderful people of Midway Baptist Church in Polk County. February 
1 1 Mrs. Plutina Morrow and Mrs. Jean Nodine presented a program of 
banjo and organ music. We had a country ham and chicken supper in 
March. We fed the largest number of people ever. We saw old friends 
and made new ones. Easter Sunday we had our first Sunrise Service 
followed by breakfast. April 30, 2001 we had the means to build the 
long awaited picnic shelter. The shelter is a post steel type construction 
with roof and concrete floor 28x84 feet. We purchased new fold-up ta- 
bles for the area. The shelter was put to use for our homecoming cele- 
bration the third Sunday in May and was enjoyed by all. In September, 
eight of our youth and their parents spent the day at Dollywood. They 
had a wonderful time and they all made it to church the next day on 
time. We still have Bible Study on Wednesday nights except the last 
Wednesday of the month when we do our Nursing Home Ministry. 
Church held revival services October 7-9, 2001 led by Darrell Maxwell

Committee and the children participated in the "Trick-or-Treat for U.N. 

89 



C.E.F." program on Halloween raising money for the children's health 
program. 

During November, 19 youth went on a camping retreat with a focus 
on ''Finding God's Will for My Life" and the church joined the other 
churches of Union Mills in the annual Community Thanksgiving Ser- 
vice held this year at Union Mills Presbyterian Church with Rev. Kevin 
Carter of Camp Creek Baptist speaking. Also during January, the 
church was saddened with the death of our oldest member, Mrs. Annie 
S. Nanney, at 103 years old. 

Missionary Amy Derrick spoke to the church during March telling 
of her experiences as a missionary with international people in Vancou- 
ver, British Columbia and her new work now based in Raleigh. The 
Senior Adult Ministries Group hosted workers from the Rutherford 
County Vocational Workshop for lunch in March and Rev. Michael 
Shook, pastor of Grove Park Baptist Church in Clinton, came home to 
Round Hill to lead in revival services. 

Jn April, 14 youth went to Caswell for "Deep Impact," a program of 
hands on missions from across the state. Our youth did music evangel- 
ism, construction, painting, recreation evangelism, and also did evan- 
gelism while offering free car washes. Also during April, the church 
participated in the Community Easter Sunrise service at Camp Creek 
Baptist Church with Rev. Johnny Searight of Piney Ridge C.M.E. 
Church as the speaker. 

The Vacation Bible School this June focused on "Celebrate Free- 
dom" as we looked at our Baptist heritage with an Independence Day

counselor at our Baptist Royal Ambassadors camp for boys. Following 
the camping season, the counselors paid their own way for a mission 
trip together to Sitka, Alaska as a part of the Baptist State Convention's

Spencer

toring Program with Spindale Elementary School We tutored 1-3 grad- 
ers during the 2000-2001 school year. We will increase to i-4 graders 
for the 2001-2002 school year. 

In November 2000, we coordinated the "Spindale Christmas Tree 
Lighting" service. We invited the children of Spindale Elementary to 
make large ornaments for the tree and invited our sister churches in 
Spindale to meet us at the tree, walking by candlelight as we lit the 
town tree. 

In December 2000, members of Spencer participated in bringing toys 
for the Department of Social Services to distribute to needy children at 
Christmas. 

In February 2001, Spencer Baptist hosted a series of Lenten Worship 
Services. Other churches in the Spindale area joined with us each week 
as we gathered for a time of worship and lunch. Each church partici- 
pated in the leading of worship and in the preparation of lunch. 

Spencer Church celebrated 75 years in April of 2001. The church will 
observe a special anniversary Homecoming celebration in November 
2001. 

Summer of 2001 was once again a busy time for the church. We heid 
our third annual 'Terrific Tuesdays" program, enrolling 160 children in 
grades 1-5. Vacation Bible School was a huge success with 213 en- 
rolled for the week. The youth participated in Youth Evangelism Week 
at Caswell in June, and in July they completed a hands on mission pro- 
ject aiong the Appalachian Trail. 

In August 200 1 , members of Spencer gathered for Christmas in August. 
A representative from Samaritan's Purse was our guest and we began 
our partnership with this organization's Operation Christmas Child. We 
will continue to collect goodie filled shoe boxes to ship throughout the

92 



Samaritan's purse. We sent 38 cases of Bibles and will continue to part- 
ner with people in Liberia.

Sulphur Springs 

As we record the historical information for this church year we praise 
and give thanks to the wonderful grace of our Lord. He has watched 
over us and provided for us our every need as a church. Our church year 
centers around the many things that we have done as a church. Our Sen- 
ior Citizens Group has taken several wonderful trips together and the 
fellowship has been great. Our youth and children's groups have had a 
very active year. When the Green River Association took on the project 
of roofing the church in Spindale, our youth responded in a wonderful 
way and helped with the task. When our youth decided they wanted to 
go to camp this past summer, they chose Fort Caswel! "Deep Impact" 
where they could be involved in going out into the community and do- 
ing acts of service. They were involved in construction projects, Back- 
yard Bible Clubs, and free car washes as service evangelism was put 
into practice. It was a marvelous opportunity for them and the adults 
who went. Our children attended a week of camp at South Mountain 
Baptist Camp and Enjoyed a wonderful time together. During the week 
of camp we had several to respond to invitations and accept Jesus Christ 
as Savior. 

Keith Ezell has become our interim music director and is doing a 
great job. Keith not only works with the choir but is involved exten- 
sively with our children and youth program. Keith is doing a fine job 
relating with both age groups and is a joy to work with. This had indeed 
been a wonderful summer for both our children and youth. Our church 
was involved again this year in the Western North Carolina Mountain 
State Fair and participated in helping with the Missions Booth and the 
Break Tent. 

Our church has had marvelous opportunities in helping with local 
missions as well as world missions and we give God all the glory for 
what great things He has done.

The church was led in revival services October 15-18, 2001 by Rev.

cation Bible School "Polar Expedition" was held July 15-20. 2001, 

West Memorial 

WMC started off the 2000-2001 church year Learning to Live the Life 
That Confirms Worship, We spent time with Pastor Jeff Looking at the 
Witnesses as we examined the faith of great people such as Abraham, 
Enoch, etc. In applying this study to our life we learned the importance 
of Laying Aside the Weight, in order to keep our focus clear. Once 
these areas were addressed it was time to Learn How to Work. We are 
no longer spectators but participators. We also learned that the Place of 
Rest for the Worker is in Christ. The final few months of the church 
year have been spent Listening to the Warnings. The five warnings 
found in Hebrews are there to exhort us not to draw back but move for- 
ward. 

During our equipping & preparing time, we have grown very close 
and spent a lot of time working together to accomplish goals and com- 
plete projects. Some of the things we have done this year include a 
block party to kick-off VBS (which, much thanks to Jeanna Wilson and 
Lisa Parker, was a wonderful success!), followed by a special visit from 
Tully Blanchard and Jack Roper. Carolyn Bailey thrilled the children 
with a trip to Carowinds. The men of the church became better 
equipped to Go The Distance at the Promise Keepers event in Atlanta, 
Georgia; and the women, as well, were provided much encouragement 
and renewal at the annual Women's Weekend get-a-way in Pigeon 
Forge. 

From sheet-rock and light fixtures to ceiling fans and toilets Rick 
McDowell has been there with hammer in hand to help make WMC a 
pleasant atmosphere to worship in. His expertise in this area has been 
very beneficial to all who worship here. 

With Tim Ruppe as their leader, the Youth group has shown signs 
of growth not only numerically, but spiritually as well. In fact, our 
youth has formed their own praise team this year! Awesome! 

Our AW ANA program, led by Joyce Wilson, has completed a very 
successful year in which our children are being equipped through Scrip- 
ture memorization. It has been a privilege to each of us as teachers to 
have been an instrument in helping these children to learn to hide God's 
Word in their heart, as Psalm 119:11 says, that they might not sin 
against God. 

WMC's Deaf Ministry continues to move forward and are pleased 
to welcome aboard Rocky Shifflett and his family. Rocky has come on 
as a pastor to the deaf. He and his family reside in Marshall, N.C. They 
have been a great blessing to the ministry! 

Our Watchcare ministry, with James Jennings serving as candidate/ 
leader in this position, still proves to be a successful program in helping 

94 



WMC build meaningful relationships through Bible studies, food, fun 
and fellowship. 

As we Learn to Live the Life that Confirms Worship, Terry Wilson 
has been there to help us develop a deeper understanding through his 
leading in the area of Praise & Worship. We are looking forward to be- 
ginning our Vol. II WMC Praise & Worship CD soon! 

All-in-all it has been a year of studying and searching as we prepare 
and equip ourselves for what God wants to do at West Memorial 
Church. Praise God for another wonderful year!

REPORTS 
DIRECTOR OF MISSIONS 

The Association year was marked by continued support of the on-going 
ministries the Association sponsors. Churches choosing to voluntarily 
cooperate in ministry that can better be accomplished more effectively than 
by doing so individually is at the heart of being Baptist. I appreciate the 
cooperation of our churches. 

During the year a significant development was the approval of a new 
leadership structure for the Association. The Association approved the 
implementation of Resource Teams and Leader for six areas of Church Life. 
Worship, Bible Study, Discipleship, Family Support, Missions/Ministry and 
Evangelism are now led by a team leader and team of people to address these 
areas for resources that support the life of the local church. The Administra- 

61 



tion Council worked on this during the year and I appreciate their insights 
and wisdom in this. This new approach will be folly implemented in the 
2002-2003 Associational year. 

The Woman's Missionary Union, led by Yvonne Holland and a strong 
leadership team, once again were leading out in mission support, education 
and praying. 1 appreciate the WMU being available to offer training for 
churches as they have need in strengthening, starting or renewing their 
mission groups in the church. I also appreciate that they teach Baptist 
missions. Carry on WMU. 

There were three churches that sponsored Bible Drill for children and 
youth in their churches this year. This means of helping children develop a 
basic working knowledge and familiarity with the Bible has been around for 
decades in Baptist life. More churches are encouraged to provide this 
training for their children. 

Rev. Rick Brewer led the Minister's Conference with a touch of warmth 
and compassion that was appreciated by the ministers. Rev. Ron Boone 
prepared meals for each month's meeting that were a delight. 
All of our ministers are welcomed to participate. 

The ministry at the Rest Stop continues to be received with delight and 
amazement by travelers. People leave notes of appreciation and thanks that 
are a real encouragement. Churches have elected Rest Stop coordinators 
from their congregations that secure people to host the ministry. An on- 
going challenge in this ministry is having people to host it. There are some 
weekends when some hours are hosted, but there are many when no one 
hosts for all weekend. The facility is open each Friday-Saturday-Sunday and 
around holidays. Churches are urged to take a day, secure six people and 
have two at a time take a three hour shift and see how God will bless them. 

I thought the response to the Mountain State Fair Ministry in 2001 was 
amazing, but this year it was even greater. Over 70 people from our 
Association went and ministered at the fair. Churches contributed about two 
hundred hygiene kits, over two hundred bears, about five thousand salvation 
bracelets, sandwiches for the fair workers and much prayer for the ministry. 
Through this ministry you demonstrated your commitment to missions in a 
very tangible way. 

In the summer of 2002 a group of people from various denominations in 
the county came together to implement a project in which a video portraying 
the life of Christ based on the gospel of Luke will be distributed to each 
household in the county. Many of our churches supported this effort and are 
anticipating the Holy Spirit will bring much fruit from this distribution. 

The churches were faithful to financially support the Association by 
contributing to the budget, Nannie Newsome Offering, debt, Christian 
Character Scholarship and designated gifts. Thank you for your support of 
the Association in this manner. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Rev. Billy Honeycutt

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL 

VBS is a great tool to teach God's Word and reach the lost! We 
received 12 reports from our 35 churches. There were a total of 1076 
students enrolled with an average attendance of 924. There were 32 
decisions for Christ! Thank you to all the churches for your great work in 
VBS this year. 

CRISTO VIVE HISPANIC BAPTIST MISSION 

The Hispanic Mission began with three home Bible studies led by Rev. 
and Mrs. Jairo Contreras in 1997. In December 1997, with the support of 
Floyd's Creek Baptist Church, Mr. Chris Taylor, a member of the church and 
Liberty Baptist Church the first service was held in a former funeral home 
chapel in Henrietta on December 14. 

Rev. Jairo and his wife Gloria made many sacrifices as the mission began 
by leading music, preaching, driving a van loaned by Floyd's Creek, taking 
care of the nursery while sharing the gospel with the Hispanic population of 
the county. 

In April of 1998 Sandy Run and Green River Baptist Associations joined 
together to cooperate in supporting the Mission and the work of Rev. 
Contreras. In June of 1998, the Adaviile Baptist church allowed the Mission 
to begin using their unoccupied sanctuary and classrooms. The Mission had 
about 30 adults and 20 children at this time. 

The Mission remained their until December 2000 when they purchased a 
building on Oakland Road that is now their place of worship and study. 
Through the support of both Associations, the Mission and generous 
individuals the facility was purchased. The Mission moved into their 
facilities in January 2001 with 55 adults and 35 children in the congregation 
at that time. The Mission has been growing and expanding facilities is being 
planned by the mission. These facilities will possibly be used for a day care 
that will allow the Mission to offer day care for the Hispanic community in 
our county. 

The schedule of services currently are: Sunday Bible Study, Sunday 10 
AM; Worship 11 AM; Women Bible Study Monday 7 PM; Mid-week 
service, Wed. 7 PM; Gospel Music lesson, Thurs. 6:30 PM, Youth service, 
Fri. 6:30 PM; Choir rehearsal, Sat. 7 PM. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Rev. Jairo Contreras 

CHRISTIAN CHARACTER SCHOLARSHIP 

The response of churches and individuals in support of granting scholarships 
this year was very strong and demonstrates a commitment to encourage 
youth as they begin their college career. Scholarships were granted to Eric 

63 



Atchley of Piney Knob B.C, Emily Taylor of Mountain Creek B.C. F^anae 
Marso of Chimney Rock B.C., Courtney Hollifield of Oak Spring B.C., 
Joshua Gettys of Montford Cove B.C., Jeremy Ellenburg of Rutherfordton, 
Second B.C., and Courtney Adams of First Baptist Forest City. Each of 
these students received a S300 scholarship. It is always impressive to read 
the applications and reference letters that the students submit. There are 
many fine young people who are seeking to follow Christ and others are 
observing their walk. It is a joy to award these scholarships at the July 
Quarterly Associational Meeting and to be blessed by the awarding of the 
scholarship. Appreciation is expressed to all who contributed to the 
scholarships for 2002.

RESORT AREA MISSIONS 

For the summer of 2002, this ministry was blessed to be led by Miss 
Courtney Whiteside of Mountain Creek Baptist Church. She is a student at 
Campbell University studying to be a pharmacist. Courtney led services in 
Hickory Nut Falls Campground, Dogwood RV Park, Lake Lure Campground 
and River Creek Campground. She also distributed Kids Fun bags that were 
made possible by the donation of items by churches, church groups and 
individuals. Appreciation is expressed to those who contributed these items. 
Courtney was used of God in this ministry to minister to people who were 
regular campers as well as those who were there only once. It also was an 
opportunity for personal growth for Courtney as the summer progressed. 
This summer marked at least the thirtieth year of the Resort Area Missions 
that Green River Baptist Association has sponsored. A key factor in this has 
been the strong support of campground owners over the years. Below is a 
financial report from the summer. A percentage of the total of the North 
Carolina Missions Offering from all of our churches comes back to the 
Association and is used in this ministry.

It is with great joy that the Appreciation Committee commends the 
35 churches in the Green River Baptist Association for their diverse interest 
and support in 2002. Special thanks must be given to every person who 
supported the Association by serving as an officer or working on a committee 
or council under the strong leadership of Billy Honeycutt and Teresa Sams. 
Without their support and guidance many of the planned activities, programs 
and ministries could not have been accomplished. 

Let's recall several highlights and accomplishments during the year. 

1. The Lake Lure Resort Ministry was fortunate to have Courtney White 
sides from Mountain Creek Baptist Church as a summer missionary. 
Every week-end found her visiting, encouraging, worshipping and 
counseling in four camping areas. 

2. The Rest Stop Ministry continues to bless many who stop there and 
many who volunteer. Not only do we thank those who manned the Rest 
Stop but appreciation must be given to the volunteers who kept the 
surroundings clean and cared for. 

3. Special praise goes to the 70+ people from the Association who shared at 
the Mountain State Fair in Asheville. Thanks to all the churches who 
supplied hygiene kits, bears and salvation bracelets. 

4. Thanks to all who participated in the preparation and presentation of 
"Experiencing God" musical. And to Main Street Baptist Church for 
hosting the event. 

65 



5. Thanks to all ministers who support and attend the Monthly Ministers 
Conferences and to Rev. Ron Boone for preparing the meals. 

6. Thanks to the Registration Committee for their faithful service at each 
quarterly meeting. 

7. Thanks to Rev. Larry Sanders for the Annual Sermon at the April 
Quarterly Association Meeting. 

8. Thanks to Bills Creek Baptist Church and Oak Springs Baptist Church 
for hosting the Quarterly Association Meetings last year. 

9. Thanks to all churches who supported the "Jesus Video Project" in our 
county. 

10. Because the churches gave to the North Carolina Missions Offering, the 
Association received a portion of the offering for Resort Area Missions. 

1 1 . Special thanks to all who shared in the Scholarship Fund. Seven 
students who applied this year received $300.00. 

12. The Nannie Newsome Offering helped to reduce the non-interest loan 
for the motel property and to provide for the Lake Lure Summer Resort 
Ministry. 

13. Special thanks go to those who contributed money and attended the 
fund-raising banquets and activities for the Hispanic Mission. 

14. Every church in the association gave financial support to the 2002 
budget. 

The Appreciation Committee makes a motion that the 2002 Minutes 
be dedicated to Rev. Nelson Brooks. Rev. Brooks retired in March 2002 
after serving for 23 years as pastor of Gilkey Baptist Church.

INSTITUTIONAL REPORTS 
ANNUITY BOARD 

The Annuity Office of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina con- 
tinues to enjoy a close working relationship with the Annuity Board of the 
Southern Baptist Convention in providing services related to retirement plan- 
ning, financial support of ministers and other church employees, life and 
health insurance, church/clergy tax issues, and ministry to retirees and semi- 
nary/divinity students. 

Despite national and international market volatility, national grief, and a 
wartime political climate during this past year new opportunities and services 
were launched in an ongoing effort to fulfill the guiding principle of Serving 
Those Who Serve the Lord. To be specific, all the investment funds were suc- 
cessfully restructured to a registered mutual fund environment, called AB 
Funds Trust. As a result, new retail investment products, under the theme 
"New Investment Opportunities... Absolutely!," were introduced. For the 
first time ministers, church employees, and annuitants may now open IRA 
and Personal Investment Accounts. With the passage of the Economic 
Growth and Tax Reconciliation Act (EGTRA) retirement options have been 

69 



enhanced dramatically including the ability to roll over other retirement 
funds from a secular employer. 

Furthermore, new medical and disability insurance products were rolled out 
with the commitment to provide several options to meet increasingly differ- 
ent needs of our populace. Endorsed carriers, such as long-term care and 
property/casualty, continued to attract interest from our churches and church 
employees. 

The Endowment and Relief Ministry was restructured to provide enhanced 
financial assistance to the needy, retired ministers and their widows. Funds 
available to assist these persons increased as well as the number of people 
who applied for this assistance. 

The 2002 SBC Compensation Study with 35 state conventions participating 
has been conducted and the results are now accessible on the internet. For 
the first time church leaders are now able to do a customized study on the 
web. We are very excited about this useful tool as one valuable resource in 
assisting churches leaders as they study to determine what is a fair and equi- 
table compensation for those who serve the Lord in our churches. 

As of June 30, 2002, 61% (2,314) of our NC churches were actively partici- 
pating in the retirement plan. A record number of 2,851 were receiving 
benefits and 388 being assisted through the Adopt An Annuitant ministry. 

In closing, we remain committed to serve all of our churches, ministers, and 
other church employees. For more information related to products or ser- 
vices, call the Baptist State Convention of NC at 1.800.395.5102 extension 
174, visit our Web site at www. bscnc.org or call the Annuity Board at

Biblical Recorder 

The world is changing rapidly, and Baptists are changing right along with it. 
Gone are the days of a simple denominational life or a single way to be Bap- 
tist Never has it been more important for North Carolina Baptists to be in- 
formed of the many issues affecting Baptist life, mission work and mutual 
cooperation. 

The Biblical Recorder exists to provide this needed service to Baptists in 
North Carolina and beyond. The Recorder staff works diligently to comb 
through many sources of information and distill them into a trustworthy re- 

70 



source that offers regular, dependable and balanced news coverage and 
analysis of the most significant matters relating to Baptist life. In addition, 
the Biblical Recorder includes a variety of supportive resources and feature 
articles designed to encourage and inspire as well as to inform. 

The Biblical Recorder's strategic role in promoting God's kingdom work 
through North Carolina Baptists grows from its mission statement: "to fur- 
ther Christ's kingdom by providing relevant news, insightful opinions and 
supportive resources to North Carolina Baptists in a timely and accessible 
fashion, " 

As the official news journal of the BSCNC, the Biblical Recorder has func- 
tioned faithfully since its establishment in 1833 by Thomas Meredith. The 
Recorder was privately owned and operated in support of Baptist work in 
North Carolina until 1938, when the paper was purchased by the Baptist 
State Convention and incorporated as an agency of the convention. 

The Biblical Recorder is widely acknowledged to be in the top echelon of 
state Baptist papers, winning national honors from the Baptist Communica- 
tor's Association for news and editorial writing in 2000, and taking the asso- 
ciation's top prize for news writing in 2001 . 

The Biblical Recorder offers a special service that makes it possible for 
churches to combine a regular newsletter and the Biblical Recorder in a sin- 
gle package, offering significant financial savings. 

In addition to its printed form, the Biblical Recorder maintains a popular 
presence on the World Wide Web at www.biblicalrecorder.org. This Web 
site offers Internet users an opportunity to read much of each paper's content 
online, as well as to access classified ads, online Bible study resources and a 
news/weather portal. Thousands of interested readers around the world con- 
sult the online version regularly. 

As a BSCNC agency, the Biblical Recorder receives annual support from 
Cooperative Program gifts, making it possible to offer the Recorder at very 
affordable subscription rates. Subscription packets and free sample issues 
are available. For more information, please contact:

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES OF NORTH CAROLINA 

Jason and Lacey know real hope after facing hopeless tiroes. Jason and 
Lacey lived with their mother in Hilo, Hawaii. It sounds wonderful, but for 
the brother and sister it was far from paradise. Their mother's lifestyle con- 
stantly placed the two children in danger. Jason was given the blame by his 
mother for many of the things that had gone wrong in her life. 

"She didn't care about anything," Jason recalls now. "1 was just 
there. She didn't care for me." 

Jason drew violent pictures. He had difficulty relating to people and 
was diagnosed with attention deficit disorder. Soon his secrets were ex- 
posed. He had suffered severe physical and emotional abuse by his mother. 
Drugs had been a pervasive part of his life. He had begun using drugs when 
he was six years old. 

Once Jason's grandparents discovered the truth about Jason's life, 
they sought immediate help for their grandson and found the help they des- 
perately needed from Baptist Children's Homes. In August 1996, he began 
his new life at Broyhill Home in Clyde. 

Lacey still lived with her mother. The two moved to Arizona. 
Lacey spent her days in the cab of her mother's boyfriend's semi-truck. She 
was not attending school. After Jason left, Lacey became the focus of her 
mother's abuse. 

Again, the siblings' grandparents intervened. The couple began to 
think about bringing Lacey to live at Broyhill Home. In 1997, 14 months 
after Jason, she was safe. Lacey and Jason's grandparents credit Baptist 
Children's Homes for giving their grandchildren real hope, 

Lacey says she plans to be a lawyer. She likes fighting for the un- 
derdog. Jason has plans for a career in broadcast journalism. Since coming 
to Broyhill Home, both children have accepted Christ as their Savior. 

"Things began to turn around for me when I became a Christian. I 
began to read my Bible," Jason says. "I learned a lot of the answers to my 
questions. I felt like I could be more open." 

"Jason might be in an institution, in prison or dead. We try not to 
even think of what Lacey' s life would be like today," the grandparents say. 
"They've been saved!" 

Jason and Lacey are two of the 1,855 children cared for by BCH last 
year. 

Baptist Children's Homes grieves with Nation after September 11th at- 
tack-BCH president calls for acts of kindness. 

In the wake of the tragic events of September 11, BCH president Dr. Michael 
C. Blackwell stepped to the forefront to calm and encourage children and 
families. As the nation reeled from the attack, Blackwell immediately of- 
fered words of comfort to families through news media from Louisiana, Ari- 
zona, Alabama and across North Carolina. He urged Americans to "show 
kindness" to one another and exhibit "acts of goodness" toward their commu- 

72 



nities in response to the violence exhibited against our country. BCH chil- 
dren and staff united to provide needed items for those serving at Ground 
Zero and gave blood for the victims. Despite the physical and emotional 
effects of September 11, BCH's mission has remained unwavering. 
"America's spirit has not been lost, and our spirit of helping and healing is 
stronger than ever," said Blackwell. 

BCH faces financial shortfalls due to 9/11, North Carolina Baptists rise 
to meet financial challenges. 

As charities across America began to feel the financial effects of 9/11, Bap- 
tist Children's Homes also faced shortfalls. Experiencing nearly a 60 percent 
drop in annual fund giving, President Michael C. Blackwell made an urgent 
plea to friends and supporters. After an intense effort including personal 
letters and phone calls, North Carolina Baptists responded, rallying to close 
the gap by year-end. "I knew North Carolina Baptists would not forget their 
children," said Blackwell. North Carolina Baptists also stepped forward by 
meeting the 2001 Thanksgiving Offering Goal. Today, the effects of 9/1 1 are 
still being felt. "It is important for North Carolina Baptists to not grow 
weary in their efforts to help our boys and girls," said Blackwell. "Our 
churches are our lifeline. It is because of them we are able to touch the lives 
of so many." 

New BCH strategic plan unveiled. Quest: A Journey of Excellence is the 
title of the new strategic plan that will guide Baptist Children's Homes 
through 2004. The major goals of the new plan include recruiting and retain- 
ing competent qualified staff; training staff; and maintaining and enhancing 
BCH facilities. 

BCH Trustees approve allocation for Information Technology. Trustees 
made way for sweeping technological improvements throughout BCH. A 
new Information Technology Center was created and work began to connect 
all ministry sites digitally. "Every step we take is designed to enable us to 
better serve children and families... today and in the future," said Dr. Michael 
C. Blackwell. 

Gastonia couple honored at Nolen Building dedication. William "Red" 
and Mabel Nolen were recognized for their contribution at the dedication of 
the newly renovated and renamed Nolen Administration building at Mills 
Home on January 22, 2002. A gift from the Gastonia couple, who have long- 
time ties to BCH, made the necessary renovations possible. 

BCH's Developmental Disabilities Ministry dedicates two new group 
homes. More than 200 Baptist leaders, Baptist Children's Homes adminis- 
trators, staff, and guests were in attendance for the historic dedication of 
BCH's first, new group homes for developmentally disabled adults on March 
26, 2002. The Plans to break ground on the next DDM group home to be 

73 



located in Sanford are scheduled for 2003. Baptist State Convention Presi- 
dent Dr. Jerry Pereira, who spoke at the dedication, predicted "the Lord is 
going to do great and mighty things" through this ministry. 

A Place for Miracles published. In March 2002, BCH president Michael C. 
Blackwell introduced his second book. More than three years in the making. 
A Place for Miracles is a mixture of history, autobiography, inspiration, and 
vision. The book received the 2002 Baptist Communicators Association De- 
sign Award for Best Book Design. 

New Millennium Families: A Study Guide introduced to North Carolina 
Baptists In September 2001. the study guide to BCH president Michael C. 
BlackwelPs book New Millennium Families was introduced at the first of 
two statewide Deacon-Spouse Training Events in Bryson City. A total of 
more than 200 deacons and their spouses attended the two conferences. 
Blackwell and study guide creator Gaylin Huff led group sessions regarding 
the changing make-up of families as discussed in the book and its effects on 
the church in North Carolina. A Study Guide, to be used with New Millen- 
nium Families, helps teachers prepare for and guide groups of adults using 
four different formats: 7 Week Study, Youth Parent Study, Single Parent 
Study, and Family Ministry Study. 

Baptists called to join "Chain of Prayer" for North Carolina's children and 
families. BCH president Michael C. Blackwell has asked for all North Caro- 
lina Baptists to participate in the "Chain of Prayer." Begun in February 2002 
at the annual Baptist Men's conference in Charlotte, this physical chain is 
made up of thin strips of paper containing the handwritten prayers of NC 
Baptist men, women and children. Throughout the year, these strips are be- 
ing gathered by BCH representatives and formed together into a chain that 
will be displayed at this year's Baptist State Convention in November. With 
children and families facing many different sources of crisis in today's world, 
Dr. Blackwell believes this statewide unification of prayers for children and 
families in our state will yield great results. 

The support of North Carolina Baptists through the Thanksgiving Offering, 
Cooperative Program, church and individual gifts, memorials, honors, and 
estate gifts enables us to fulfill our mission statement-'Tielping hurting chil- 
dren... healing broken families" - through 14 locations throughout the state. 
Thank you, North Carolina Baptists, for your continued prayers and support. 

Michael C. Blackwell, President 
Sybil Stewart, board of trustees chair

BAPTIST FOUNDATION OF NORTH CAROLINA 

The mission of North Carolina Baptist Foundation since its inception in 1920 
has been to assist the Convention and its institutions and agencies in increas- 
ing an awareness among North Carolina Baptists of Christian estate steward- 
ship principles as a means of financially under girding churches, institutions 
and mission endeavors on a permanent basis. The uniqueness of the minis- 
tries and services provided by the institutions and General Board staff merits 
increased financial support. The Foundation accomplishes these objectives 
by offering assistance in estate planning counsel, Will preparation, planned 
giving, charitable remainder trusts, endowment funds and church fund man- 
agement. 

During 2001, the Foundation assisted individuals in establishing 33 endow- 
ment funds and 8 charitable remainder trusts totaling $4.8 million and re- 
ceived $9.4 million in contributions to existing endowments all of which will 
ultimately benefit countless Baptist causes on a permanent basis. Programs 
were provided for 162 churches and associations during the year to promote 
Make Your Will Month, Christian estate stewardship, and church fund man- 
agement. Over $2.3 million from churches and institutions came under man- 
agement to enhance numerous ministries including scholarships, building 
funds, cemetery funds, benevolence fronds, general operating funds and other 
various mission causes. With a total of $16.5 million in contributions, it was 
the best year ever eclipsing the previous high of $10.1 million recorded in 
2000. 

The Foundation employs professional money managers to invest these funds 
according to an investment policy adopted by its Board. Four investment 
pools are offered: a growth fund, a balanced fund, an income fund and a 
fixed income fund. The Foundation uses the services of Salomon Smith 
Barney to help select top money managers and evaluate performance. As of 
December 31, 2001, the Foundation held $106.8 million under management. 
This is an increase of more than $9.4 million over 2000. 

During 2001, our distributions totaled $6.7 million, with charity receiving 
$4.4 million and individuals, through trusts, receiving $2.3 million. During 
the 82-year history of The North Carolina Baptist Foundation, Inc., $20.8 
million has been distributed to individuals and $36.8 million to Baptist 
churches, institutions and mission causes for a grand historical total of $57.6 
million.

BAPTIST HOSPITALS OF NORTH CAROLINA 

Meeting the Challenges of Health Care 

BAPTIST HOSPITAL AND NORTH CAROLINA BAPTISTS; 
PARTNERS IN MISSIONS 

The Baptist Hospital mission began in 1921 when our North Caro- 
lina Baptist founders stated, "We desire to build a hospital to bring the heal- 
ing art more definitely under the dominion of the Great Healer." Gold 
crosses that adorn the exterior of the hospital symbolize our historic and daily 
commitment to bring medical excellence and Christian compassion to those 
we are privileged to serve. This report will highlight our partnership with 
North Carolina Baptists in continuing the mission of healing. 

SCHOOL OF PASTORAL CARE 

Our mission at the School of Pastoral Care is "to provide ministries 
of growth, hope, and healing in the Spirit of Christ" This defines the spiri- 
tual essence of who we are and the meaning of what we do in caring for hurt- 
ing people. We are very thankful to North Carolina Baptists for their gifts to 
the School through the Cooperative Missions Program. You are making a 
tremendous difference as our partner in life-changing ministries. 

CareNet, Inc., our Department of Pastoral Counseling, is the 
largest faith-based counseling system in the nation. We continue to expand 
our services across North Carolina. The scope of this ministry is astounding: 
27,000 hours of counseling per year at 21 locations. These include 4 regional 
centers (Winston-Salem, Greenville, Fayetteville, and Wilmington) and 17 
strategically located satellites. The individual stories of emotional and spiri- 
tual healing, of broken families being restored, are even more telling. 

The Center for Congregational Health celebrates its 10th Anni- 
versary in 2002. Dr. David Odom has been the Center's visionary leader 
from its beginning. The initial mission continues to guide this ministry of 
helping churches become healthier communities of faith. The Center is pro- 
viding consultation to approximately 25 churches per month, and training to 
over 600 church leaders per year. The financial support of N.C. Baptists 
allows Baptist churches to receive initial consultation at no cost, and provides 
subsidies for churches and ministers needing financial assistance. Please call 
the Center for more information (336-716-0459). 

The Department of Chaplaincy and Pastoral Education provided 
ministry through more than 61,000 pastoral contacts in the past year. Every 
day chaplains can be found comforting bereaved families, praying for seri- 
ously ill patients, reading Scriptures to those who are afraid, offering comfort 
and extending hope in the name of Jesus Christ. Fifty-three students received 
supervision and training in 2001. 

The Department of Church and Community Relations continues 
to serve its mission as a liaison between the Hospital and North Carolina 
Baptist churches. We welcome you to call Rev. Paul Mullen if you need 
assistance (336-716-3027). Many pastors call on behalf of church members 

76 



who need a referral to the Medical Center or have concerns about medical 
bills because of financial need. Speakers can be requested to provide an 
overview of the Hospital and its ministries to church groups. 

BAPTIST BENEVOLENT CARE FUND 

It is a difficult burden to be physically sick and worried about how 
to pay for needed medical care. North Carolina Baptists extend the compas- 
sionate reach of missions to patients in financial need at Baptist Hospital 
through their gifts to the Mother's Day Offering. Those you have helped are 
deeply thankful for this gracious witness to the love of Jesus Christ, and they 
are drawn closer to Him. All of the funds are used for this purpose. Thank 
you, North Carolina Baptists, for giving $568,808 to this ministry in 2001!

CLOSING WORDS FROM THE PRESIDENT 

We at Baptist Hospital are very thankful to be partners in the mis- 
sion of healing with North Carolina Baptists. Our roots are in this partner- 
ship, beginning as a mission enterprise of the Baptist State Convention in 
192 1 . This report also highlights the ongoing nature of the relationship with 
the School of Pastoral Care. We have a sacred privilege and responsibility to 
serve Jesus Christ by serving people in need at Baptist Hospital. We thank 
you for being our partner in these "ministries of growth, hope, and healing." 
We ask that you pray for our patients, their families, and our staff as we week 
to serve our Lord each day at the Medical Center. 

Respectfully submitted,

BAPTIST RETIREMENT HOMES OF NORTH CAROLINA 

Proudly serving older adults since 1951 

The generous support received from North Carolina Baptists has enabled 
Baptist Retirement Homes to lead the state in providing benevolent care for 
Older Adults who lack sufficient financial resources to pay for the quality 
care they deserve. At all Homes communities, residents rest in the knowl- 
edge that they will be cared for as long as they live. 

Baptist Retirement Homes continues to be on the cutting edge of 
meeting the needs of Older Adults... particularly those dealing with dementia- 
related conditions, such as Alzheimer's Disease. 

In recent years, the Homes has established specially designed resi- 
dences to meet the special needs of these dear ones. The Fowler Memory 
Enhanced Residence at the Western North Carolina Baptist Home in Ashe- 
ville has been operational since 2000; the Kulynych Memory Enhanced Resi- 
dence opened at the Brookridge Retirement Community in Winston-Salem in 
2001; later this year, a third residence will open at the Home's newest com- 
munity, The Gardens of Taylor Glen, in Concord. 

Thank you North Carolina Baptists, for helping us make life for the 
Older Adults of this state... 'the Best of Times!"

COUNCIL ON CHRISTIAN HIGHER EDUCATION 
Baptist State Convention of North Carolina 

"Shaping Lives for... a Life" is the mission of North Carolina Baptist colleges 
and universities. 

Students come to the campuses of Campbell, Chowan, Gardner- Webb, Mars 
Hill and Wingate expecting to receive an education. What they may not ex- 
pect is an experience that will shape the rest of their lives. 

Like the artist who carefully and methodically sculpts wet clay, giving it 
form and function, the faculty and staff of North Carolina Baptist colleges 
and universities shape the lives of students through their dedicated teaching 
and mentoring. 

The graduates of these campuses emerge as people who become our future 
ministers, doctors, lawyers, artists, teachers, businesspeople, and church and 
community leaders. 

It has been shown that graduates of church related institutions invest them- 
selves in their churches and communities in greater numbers than graduates 
of public institutions of higher education. As a result of the support of North 
Carolina Baptists, the future looks bright for our churches and communities. 

Gifts to the Cooperative Missions Budget of the Baptist State Convention of 
North Carolina last year made it possible for six hundred twelve (612) mem- 
bers from four hundred forty-five (445) convention related churches to re- 
ceive special scholarship assistance to attend our five affiliated institutions of 
Christian higher education. Seventy-four (74) out of eighty (80) associations 
were represented in this group. 

Some of the recipients would not have been able to pursue their dream of a 
degree from an accredited college or university without the financial assis- 
tance provided by generous North Carolina Baptists. One of those recipients 
lost his father unexpectedly during his freshman year in college. Scholarship 
assistance from North Carolina Baptists made it possible for him to continue 
with his studies. He graduated this year. 

Another scholarship recipient is the mother of six children. In spite of the 

79 



pressures to be a good mother, she pursued her studies while holding down a 
full-time job. She, too, graduated this year with a perfect 4.0 grade point 
average. She is employed by a North Carolina Baptist institution. 

These are a few of those who are benefiting from your generous support of 
our Baptist State Convention. In the coming years, we will benefit from their 
contributions to our life as North Carolina Baptists.

Gardner-Webb University -2001 -2002 Academic Year Summary 

As Gardner- Webb officially enters into a countdown to its centennial in 
2005, the institution is experiencing success in all phases of campus life. 
Despite a progressive move into the 21st century, however, the University's 
mission remains the same as it has been since its founding in 1905 -to pro- 
vide learning of distinction within a caring Christian environment. 

The 2001-2002 year at Gardner- Webb will be noted in the annuals of the 
University's history as one of extreme significance. Programs and facilities, 
affiliations, personnel and student body all were enhanced further to continue 
the institution 's rise to regional and national prominence. 

Programs such as the M. Christopher White School of Divinity have contin- 
ued to offer new and dynamic courses of study under the leadership of highly 
respected faculty members. In Fall 2001 Gardner- Webb began offering its 
first -ever doctoral program, the Doctor of Ministry )D. Min.) degree, with 
the maximum number of students enrolled. 

The School of Divinity is prepared to enter this new realm with strong ad- 
ministrative and faculty leadership, and challenging curriculum and auxiliary 
offerings as well. A hallmark of the GWU divinity experience continues to 
be the annual Holy Land and Paul's Missionary Journeys Study Tours. The 
trips, now underwritten by GWU for divinity students, is led by GWU Presi- 
dent Dr. Chris White, a noted authority in biblical studies, and Dr. Wayne 
Stacy, Dean of the School of Divinity. 

The School of Divinity also welcomed the addition of two newly established 
endowed chairs in 2001-2002. The Bob D. Shepherd Chair of New Testa- 
ment Interpretation was the first endowed chair to ever be formed at GWU, 
and Dr. Todd D. Still was named at opening divinity convocation to occupy 
the esteemed position. In the spring, the Randall Lolley Chair of Pastoral 

80 



Studies was completed in honor of Dr. Lolley's tremendous impact on Bap- 
tist life. 

The Center for Congregational Enrichment, a function of the School of Di- 
vinity, this past year was the beneficiary of GWU's largest-ever grant, a 
$1.25 million gift from the Lilly Foundation to begin a program for youth 
that nurtures the call to Christian ministry. Hired this year to direct the Cen- 
ter and the new Lilly program was Dr. Danny West, a noted Baptist leader 
who will administrate the innovative new Lily venture while continuing the 
Center's work to provide seminars and workshops to laypersons and church 
leaders on timely topics that range from teaching Sunday School to effective 
church administration. 

The same sense of excitement and progress that has marked the past year in 
the School of Divinity has permeated the entire institution as well. Other 
areas of the University that were lauded this past year include the GWU 
School of Education, which had its teacher education program ranked for the 
third year in a row among the top programs of its kind in a recent study pro- 
duced by the State Board of Edution. The School of Education is recognized 
for qualityin all its departments with accreditations from the National Coun- 
cil for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), the most prestig- 
ious status that can be achieved in teacher education. 

Further indication of Gardner- Webb's commitment to the highest level qual- 
ity of instruction is Dr. Gail Price, winner of the 2001-2002 Fleming- White 
Excellence in Teaching Award that honors the University's most outstanding 
faculty member. Price, professor of English and past chair of the GWU De- 
partment of English Language and Literature, has brought her Christian in- 
fluence and integrity to the classroom for more than a decade, and her honor 
was voted upon by not only students, but fellow faculty and staff as well. Eh*. 
Price is a widely respected authority in her field and regularly participates in 
innovative efforst locally, regionally and nationally to continually raise the 
standard of excellence in English and writing instruction. 

Furthering its mission to provide world-class education in a Christian setting, 
Gardner- Webb has refined and expanded many of its 17 off-campus locations 
this year as well, including the new "Gardner- Webb University at States- 
ville" operation. Providing the only four-year opportunity to that region of 
North Carolina, GWU at Statesville is settling into a new, state-of-the-art 
facility in Iredell County that spans over 1 1,000 square feet. In April, a new 
facility was unveiled in Mecklenburg County as well, officially named 
"Gardner- Webb University at Charlotte." The institution's evening school 
offerings for working adults are offered at the site along with multiple gradu- 
ate level programs for the citizens of tat area also. 



81 



The quality of the student body continued in 2001-2002 to set new standards 
of excellence at G WU. The average GPA for incoming students was over 
3.4 and the average SAT was 1 100. A newly completed strategic plan for the 
University identifires this quality of student as being key to the growth and 
progress of GWU's next decade. In addition, the strategic plan ana accompa- 
nying master plan have set forth ambitious and exciting goals for the univer- 
sity in the next decade, including expansion of the physical campus and aca- 
demic programs, among others. 

The new 2001-2002 year also meant the completion of GWU's transition 
phase to NCAA Division I Status. Fall 2002 marks the beginning of a new 
era in athlethics, as well as academics and recognition, as Gardner- Webb has 
begun competing in the Atlantic Sun Conference (formerly the TAAC). This 
move to Division I and conference affiliation opens new doors institutionally 
for Gardner- Webb as new markets and opportunities for exposure are tapped 
in member cities such as Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando, Jacksonville, Bir- 
mingham, Nashville and Atlanta. 

Students at Gardner- Webb also enjoyed another eventful year full of opportu- 
nities to grow in all areas of their well-being. Notably, many students again 
participated in Ministerial Education (M.E.) Days, which allow undergradu- 
ate and graduate ministerial students the chance to preach in Baptist churches 
in area associations through a cooperative arrangement with the GWU Office 
of Campus Ministries. That office continues also to offer the weekly DI- 
MENSIONS program to students, which features prominent speakers and 
performers who bring positive messages of their Christian faith each Tuesday 
throughout the academic year. 

As a leader in the Baptist community, Gardner- Webb takes seriously its re- 
sponsibility as a beacon of quality Christian higher education to the state, 
region and the nation. The decisions made by the Board of Trustees and the 
administration will continue to reflect that philosophy as the University 
charts a course for the 21st century. 

Staying true to its affiliation with the Christian faith, Gardner- Webb remains 
appreciative for the generous support it receives from the Cooperative Pro- 
gram and feels that the school is more effective as a result of offerings that 
are enhanced with these funds. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. David Boan

summer music weeks for children and youth already mentioned, there 
was the youth Handbell Festival, Adult Handbell Festival, and Youth 
Choir and Instrumental Festival. At Christmas we combined with 
choirs from First Presbyterian Church and First united Methodist 
Church to present an Advent Carol Service. These same churches 
joined again at Easter for a series of Holy Week services. 

On the mission field, we provided opportunities through WMU, the 
Mission Action Group, and Baptist Men. Messengers attended 
meetings of the BSCNC and CBF. Our own Richard Mauney teaches at 
Emmanuel Bible Institute in Oradea, Romania. In addition to 
contributing to Yokefellow Ministries and participating with the Parish

The church year of 2001 for Long Branch Baptist Road Church was 
rilled with excitement. We had our annual events which included

unique were: purchasing a church van, the donation of a piano from the 
Walker Hunter family, and the acquisition of a new flag set for the 
church by monetary contributions in memory of Reid Jones. 
Throughout the year we had several "Fellowship Sunday night 
Dinners". Our Thanksgiving dinner this year included Shiloh, Bethany, 
and Kistlers Chapel. 

During this year we lost another member of our church family, Mr. 
Peacock. At the time of his death he had no other family to help with 
arrangements - other churches, businesses, friends, and community 
came together to arrange for his funeral and interment. 

On August 25th of this year we had a very special service to honor 
the emergency workers in our area and to remember the lives that were 
lost last September 1 1 . There were over 150 present for this service and 
among the guests were Senator Walter Dalton and Sheriff Dan Good. 
A very significant portion of our members work in the emergency field 
which includes Emergency Medical Technicians, Firemen, and 
Policemen. We were honored to be able to take the time to say thank 
you to all of them.

Main Street 

We here at Main Street have experienced an outstanding year in 
which the Lord Jesus has blessed us and moved us in many ways. We 
have grown in number through Baptism and through transfer growth. 
In March of this year, our pastor attended a FAITH Sunday School 
Evangelism Clinic and was trained as a FAITH leader. Three of our 
members attended a training clinic in June. We began a FAITH 
program in August of this year. 

We are in the praying and planning stage of a Sunday School/ 
Fellowship Hall renovation, which will take place in the coming year. 
As we have seen our Sunday School grow we have begun new classes 
for children. This spring we completed a major renovation project in 
the nursery/infant section of our Sunday School space. 
We had the pleasure of hosting "Experiencing God, The Musical" 
which was led by Krista Haynes of West Point Baptist Church. Our 

87 



Children's Music Director, Debbie Brewer, helped with some of the 

duties involved in this wonderful production. 

As God has brought in willing hearts, we have begun WOM and 

Acteens here at Main Street with great results. 

During the summer months, we had an evangelistic car wash for 

widows and single mothers in an effort to minister to them and to find 

prospects for salvation. 

Most of all we are happy to report that the Lord Jesus has promised us 

that He will hear us when, we pray and that He will attend our services 

in the coming year. 

The Lord has given us a productive year and we thank Him for it all.

In September, Super Buddies, our after-school tutoring ministry 
began it's 3rd year with lst-3rd graders from Spindale Elementary 
School. Lori Benton is the coordinator for this ministry, which serves 
12-15 children. Also in September, our church participated at the 
Spindale Correctional Facility - providing chapel services each Tuesday 
night of the month to the inmates. 

The children of our church were "treated" to a special "Trunk or 
Treat" on October 31st. This was a wonderful alternative to trick or 
treating and our members enjoyed a special time of passing out treats 
from the trunks of their cars! 

November was an exciting month for Spencer Baptist Church. We 
celebrated our 75th Anniversary with a special service on November 
11th! Former member, Rev. Art Herron was our guest preacher, and 
former Minister of Music, Malone Thomason, was our special music 
guest. A dinner on the grounds followed the service of worship. 

Spencer partnered once again with the Dept. of Social Services 
during the month of December to provide Christmas gifts for children 
in our community in need of toys and clothes. Also in December, we 
joined forces with some of the Spindale Area churches for our 2nd 
Annual Tree Lighting! Children of Spindale made decorations for the 
tree, and we gathered on the corner of N. Oak and Main St. for a service 
of worship. The rest of the Advent season was full of activity around 
our church. Our children's choirs and Adult Choir joined together to 
present "The Wonder of Christmas" during a special Sunday Worship 
service. Our church family also gathered to go caroling to our 

93 



Homebound Members during this month. 

January was a time for our deacons and their spouses to participate 
in our Deacon Retreat at the Hollificld Leadership Center at Lake 
Hickory. 

In February, Spencer members participated in the "Souper Bowl of 
Caring" project to help feed the hungry-homeless in our area. We also 
partnered again with the Spindale Correctional Facility to provide 
chapel services to the inmates during the month. In mid-February, 45 
of our youth and chaperones headed on their annual Winter Youth 
Retreat to Boone, NC. The 2nd week of February was WMU Focus 
Week. Our WMU hosted a special missions breakfast, and our puppet 
team "The SonShine Bunch", entertained. Guest speaker for the 
breakfast was Jon Ward from Adaville Baptist Church. 

Spencer hosted and participated once again in the Weekly Lenten 
Services sponsored by Spindale Area Churches. Area churches took 
turns providing the Worship Time and the Lunch Meal. These services 
were held each Tuesday at noon throughout Lent. 

In April, our church was host to the Rutherford County Caregiver 
Fair. We also held our Annual Easter Egg Hunt for children. Easter 
Sunday, the community was invited to our Sunrise Service, which was 
held this year at Isothermal. 

In May, our church initiated and helped to lead the community of 
Spindale and surrounding churches in a Community Fundraising BBQ 
for the children in our community. Enough funds were raised to keep 
the Spindale Pool Open, the Spindale House fully functioning, and the 
library open. 

Vacation Bible School was held the first week of June. We enrolled 
222 participants this year, with an average attendance of 180! Also in 
June, our youth spent a week at Caswell. 

July was a busy month! In place of our "Terrific Tuesdays' 
ministry, we offered "Kids Kamp" this year, to children in grades 1-5. 
This week long camp was a huge success, with over 100 children 
participating! The mornings were spent at the church in Bible Study, 
Music, and Crafts, and the afternoons were spent on a variety of field 
trips. The week ended with a Celebration Service for the kids and their 
families. Following Kids Kamp, 25 of our youth and young adults left 
for a mission trip to the Outer Banks, where they were involved in 
beach ministries for a week. 

In August, our WMU sponsored "Christmas in August." The 
evening began with a traditional Christmas dinner, with turkey, 
dressing, and desserts! Our children and puppets presented excerpts 
from the musical "Operation Christmas Child" which was the kick off 
for our mission project with Samaritan's Purse. We will be preparing 
shoe boxes of goodies through November to send to the Operation 
Christmas Child ministry around the world.

Spindale First 

Dr. Don Christian resigned April 14 and relocated to First Baptist 
Church Richlands to become their senior pastor. In May the church 
called Dr. Charles Cobb as interim pastor. The church constructed a 
bus port. For community missions we held two events: Fall Festival 
with Trunk or Treat and VBS Block Party. 
Sulphur Springs 

To God be the glory great things He hath done. We praise the Lord in 
all that He has done mis past church year. We had a wonderful spring 
revival with Rev. Terry Brooks of Green Hill Baptist leading the 
meeting and a wonderful fall revival with Rev. Charlie Blackwell. Our 
Vacation Bible School was one of our finest with the children climbing 
Faith Mountain. Our children enjoyed children's camp again this year at 
South Mountain Baptist Camp and our youth enjoyed Green Mountain in 
Lenoir. Our church called Keith Ezell as our part-time Music, Youth 
and Children's Director and is doing a great job. There are many more 
blessings the Lord has given to us but the main emphasis we desire as all 
our churches of the Green River Baptist Association is to serve Jesus 
Christ our Lord and glorify Him in all we do. 
West Memorial 

The Year Behind Us 

The 2001-2002 Church year was spent looking at The Four "C's" of The 
Core. The Core is the smallest group because it represents the deepest 
level of commitment. This year' s Four Seasonal Goals were developed 
with the intention in mind that this year the Core would enlarge! The 
Fall season was spent developing a Christ-like Courtesy; learning, in 
fact, to have a self-less attitude rather than a selfish attitude. The winter 
months were spent studying God's concepts of Correct Communication. 
Through this study God showed our church many areas where 
improvements were necessary in our own lives. God's Word gives us 
much direction into the necessity of communication that reflects Christ. 
How we communicate God's love IS important! Carrying on into 
Spring, we went deeper as we learned the importance of Constant 
Commitment. In this day and time there are so many things that require 
our time - school events, jobs, family, other activities, that it is hard to 
continue in our commitments to the Work and cause of Christ. This 
study has helped us to better prioritize and put Christ first. Finally, in 
the summer months we have been looking at being consistent in our 
contribution. Never could it have come at a better time! As needs 
began to crop up within the church (Such as the sudden need of a total 
renovation of the heating and air), the people had been learning the 
necessity to be consistent in our giving. God was able to use this need 
within our church as a teaching tool reinforcing this summer seasonal 
goal of Consistent Contribution. Although the numbers may not reflect 
an enlarged Core, the enlargement can be seen in the many members 
who heard God's word and were changed to the point that they made 

95 



changes in these four areas of courtesy, communication, commitment, 
and contribution; all of which when put into action demonstrate a 
deeper love for Christ and a deeper commitment to the cause of Christ 
which in turn develops a deeper, stronger Core than we had before. 
Thank God for a very revealing, yet blessed year! 
West Point 

Our church year began with many leaders attending the "Equipping

Evangelism Strategy and helped with repairs needed at a camp. Many 
members participated in the Mountain State Fair Ministry on September 
11,2002.

State Convention. November 13, 2001 in Winston-Salem, which

members also participated in the GRBA Choir in presenting 
"Experiencing God" on August 22, 2002. Throughout the year, our 
Senior Adult Choir, Youth Choir, and Children's Choirs participated in 
various programs and services. As a church fellowship we enjoyed 
many events. Revival was held October 14-17, 2001 with guest pastor, 
Rev. Alan Davis,. Our annual Fall Fellowship Festival was held 
October 27, 2001 and "Ladies' Night Out", sponsored by the men, was

REPORTS 
DIRECTOR OF MISSIONS 

October 2002-September 2003 was once again a year of mission 
support and cooperation by the churches of the Association. Examples 
abound. 

Rick Brewer served as president of our Minister's Conference and Ron 
Boone prepared the meals for each meeting. This combination of leadership 
was a blessing to those who attend and the encouraging spirit that results. 
The Conference has an average of 18-22 in attendance. Thanks for your 
support. 

The Association witnessed twice as many churches participate in 
Children's Bible Drill this year as compared to last year. This is an 
investment in the lives of children that will benefit them, the church and 
God's kingdom in the future. I encourage more churches to consider 
participating. 

There was about half a dozen folks that helped in remodeling the large 
conference room in the office. This has added beauty to the office and 
enhanced the use of the room. It took cooperation to accomplish this task. 

I appreciate the work of the Resource Team Leaders during this year 
and the Resource Teams. This new approach to Association leadership that 
provides resources and training for the churches continues to evolve. 

Your continued support of the Rest Stop Ministry allows a very public 
ministry to be offered to travelers. This grows and grows as people have 
learned of the building and make this a regular stop. There were some very 

59 



touching stories that people left in the registration book about their 
impressions of the building their meeting God while there. Thanks to all who 
have supported this ministry this year. 

The incredible response of the churches to the Mountain State Fair 
Ministry was a clear sign of cooperation. Churches provided bears, bracelets, 
clothes, hygiene kits and volunteers with the ministry. West Point Baptist 
Church took a whole day, which meant GRBA provided leadership on two 
days of the ministry. Larry and Geraldine Hinson of Mountain Creek Baptist 
Church and Eddie and Gilda Toney of Sulphur Springs Baptist Church 
provided leadership for the mission booth. This was a great contribution. 

I appreciate all that Woman's Missionary Union has done for the 
promotion, support and teaching of missions they have provided to our 
churches. WMU is the mission teaching and support of the church. 

I appreciate Teresa for her service to the churches as Administrative 
Assistant. She adds much to the spirit of the Association. 

Your financial support of the Association was exceptional this year. In 
the face of very tight church budgets and receipts, you gave faithfully to the 
budget, Nannie Newsome Offering, the debt and Christian Character 
Scholarship. Thank you. 

I also appreciate all the words of encouragement and prayers for some 
health issues I've had this past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Rev. Billy Honeycutt 

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL 

Vacation Bible Schools were held in the majority of our 35 churches this 
year. We received reports from the following churches: Adaville, Green 
Hill, Long Branch Road, Mountain View (R), Pleasant Grove, Pleasant Hill, 
Rutherfordton First, Rutherfordton Second & West Point. Together these 
churches reported a total of 1148 students enrolled with an average atten- 
dance of 896. There were 20 decisions to accept Christ. Thank you to all, 
for your prayers, support and hard work. Serving together and working for 
our Lord is a tremendously rewarding experience. 

SOUTH RUTHERFORD HISPANIC BAPTIST MISSION 
CRISTO VIVE HISPANIC BAPTIST MISSION 

We want to share with you what the Lord is doing with the Hispanic 
community. The Lord is giving us the opportunity to serve others in the 
ministry. As a result of this blessing, we have in the Sunday morning service 
an average attendance of 110; and in Sunday School 55; Wednesday night, 
70; Discipleship 25 people with class once a week; 3 home Bible studies with 
an average attendance of 8 people each. The youth ministry average is 15 in 

60 



attendance, 37 children average per service (birth- 12 years old). 

Right now, we have a good problem. The Mission is growing and 
we are running out of Sunday School space. We are praying that God will 
help us with this situation and at the same time, we ask the churches in the 
Association to help the Mission with this issue. We appreciate the 
opportunity to share with you what God is doing with our community. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Rev. Jairo Contreras, pastor

RESORT AREA MISSIONS 

Courtney Whiteside, member of Mountain Creek Baptist Church 
and Josh Gettys, member of Montford Cove Baptist Church, led the Resort 
Area Missions this year. Services were provided from Memorial Day 
weekend through Labor Day weekend in four campgrounds. One of the 
blessings of this ministry is the ready cooperation of the campground owners. 
They offer great support to the students. Another blessing is the strong 
support of churches in providing items that are used in the Kids Fun Bags. 
This continues to be an effective bridge builder between the students and 
children in the campgrounds. Appreciation is also expressed to the Missions/ 
Ministry Resource Team for handling the interview process this year. This 
ministry has been a part of Green River Baptist Association for some 30 
years. Your support is appreciated.

APPRECIATION COMMITTEE 

The Appreciation Committee would like to thank the churches of 
the Green River Baptist Association for all their support during 2003. 
Everyone that served as an officer or Resource Team Leader, on a 
committee, on the Resource Team or under the supportive leadership of Billy 
Honeycutt and Teresa Sams have done a super job this year. Without the 
support and guidance of these people the activities, programs and ministries 
would not have been accomplished. Thank you all so much for your hard 
work and dedication. A special thank you goes out to Billy and Teresa for 
always being there for everyone. 

A recall of the highlights and accomplishments during 2003 are as 
follows: 

1. The beautiful flower boxes around the association office were 
provided and maintained by Rev. John Perry. Thank you for 
making the office look so beautiful. 

2. Thank you to all the local churches for your generous donations of 
groceries for the Baptist Children's Home. What a blessing it was 
to these children. 

3. The Rest Stop Ministry is still reaching many visitors each day it is 
open. The support from our churches makes it possible to keep it 
open. A special blessing on Roger and Rheta Evarts from West 
Point for staying at the Rest Stop three out of four Fridays each 
month. This takes faithful commitment. Thank you to each and 

62 



everyone who had a part in this ministry in 2003. 

4. Our quarterly meetings were hosted this year by Mountain Creek 
Baptist and Rock Springs Baptist. Our speakers this year were 
Rev. Terry Brooks (Oct.), Rev. Tim Mann (Jan.), and Dr. Barry 
Keys (Apr.). Thanks for a job well done. 

5. Our Resort Area Missions was a huge success this year. We were 
blessed to have two of our outstanding young people to lead this 
ministry this year. They were Courtney Whiteside and Josh 
Gettys. Thank you so much for sharing Jesus with our campers 
this year. 

6. The Mountain State Fair went really well this year. Thank you 
goes to all the churches that helped with hygiene kits, bears, 
clothes and salvation bracelets. The strong support from our local 
churches made the 2003 fair, on September 9, a great success. A 
special word of appreciation is extended to West Point Baptist for 
taking the entire day on September 10th to minister to the workers. 

7. Hurricane Isabelle left a lot of destruction behind. Larry Hinson 
(Mountain Creek) and Calvin McGinnis (Rutherfordton First) took 
their time to go and help these people that were in need. It takes 
special people to devote their time to helping others in need. 
Thank you both for your willingness to give of yourselves to help 
those that needed a helping hand. 

8. The Resource Team Leaders and Teams have worked hard this 
year. Thank you for your faithfulness and hard work. 

9. Our association is blessed to have faithful and dedicated church 
clerks. Thank you to each one for your prompt reports. 

10. We have had very strong support for our financial budget in 2003. 

Thanks to all who gave. 
1 1 . Special thanks to all those who gave to the Nannie Newsome 

Offering in 2003. 

12. The WMU Leadership Team has done an outstanding job this year, 
so, many thanks for a job well done. 

13. The Ministers' Conferences have gone well in 2003 with Rick 
Brewer of Main Street Baptist as our President. Also a special thank 

you to Ron Boone for preparing all the meals for us. 

Most of all, appreciation is expressed to our Lord for his blessings 
and goodness to our Association. 

Appreciation Committee, 
Suthell Walker, Susan Campbell, Lynn Roper

INSTITUTIONAL REPORTS 
ANNUITY BOARD 

The last three years have indeed been challenging for participants in the An- 
nuity Board retirement plans. During a time that climaxed the worst three- 
year stock market cycle since 1941 many of our retirement participants have 
been challenged to look more carefully and monitor more closely their asset 
allocation with a determined focus on their long-term retirement goals. AB 
Funds Trust through the Annuity Board has continued to perform at or above 
respective bench marks in the equity and bond investment industries despite 
volatile market conditions.

In an effort to meet constituency needs the Capital Preservation Fund was 
offered as a 14 th investment choice on April 1, 2003. The fund seeks to 
maximize current income while seeking to maintain a stable value per share. 
The crediting rate is reset quarterly, is net of all fees and will be announced at 
least two weeks prior to the quarter's end. The fund is suitable for investors 
who want to preserve capital and are seeking higher current income than a 
money market fund over most time periods. 

The continuing national health crises characterized by increases in drug 
costs, provider expenses, consumer demand, and government regulation tops 
the list in fueling rising health care costs. General inflation and industry liti- 
gation fees have also added to the costs. The Annuity Board continues to 
seek ways to provide affordable health care products. New health initiatives/ 
plans are under consideration and will be available on January 1, 2004. 

As a result of these escalating costs for medical insurance, too many of our 
churches have decided they can not provide this coverage as a benefit for 
their ministers/church employees. Unfortunately, those who labor under the 
burden of a "pay package" have seen an enormous erosion of their disposable 
income. We continue to encourage churches to provide adequate benefits 
(insurance coverage, retirement, and social security offset) separate from 
salaries for their ministers and staff and to structure/administer compensation 
that takes full advantage of the tax laws. The 2002 SBC Compensation 
Study has proved to be a very valuable resource in assisting church leaders as 
they strive to provide fair and equitable compensation for those whom God 
has called to provide spiritual leadership to our Baptist churches across the 
state of North Carolina from Manteo to Murphy. 

The relief ministry through the Annuity Board continues to provide assis- 
tance to those needy, retired ministers and to their widowed spouses. Pres- 
ently, 386 North Carolinians are being helped by the Adopt An Annuitant 
and Relief Ministries. 

As of June 30, 2003, 61% (2,326) of our NC churches were actively partici- 
pating in the retirement plan, and a record number of 2,879 were receiving 
benefits. Of course, our goal is to have all of our churches actively partici- 
pating in the retirement plan provided by the Annuity Board of the SBC. 

In closing, we remain committed to serve all of our churches, ministers, and 
other church employees. For more information related to products or ser- 
vices, call the Baptist State Convention of NC at 1.800.395.5102 extensions

Baptist State Convention of N. C. Annual Missions 

The Baptist State Convention of North Carolina provides on-going lead- 
ership development and direct mission ministries through its General Board 
programs of work, primarily conducted by staff located at the Baptist Build- 
ing in Cary. 

The majority of the General Board-supported ministries are in the Mis- 
sion Growth Evangelism and Congregational Services groups. In addition, 
many of the direct mission projects (partnership missions, etc.) are adminis- 
tered through the two convention auxiliaries — Baptist Men and Woman's 
Missionary Union. Many of these mission and ministries are conducted co- 
operatively with the various associations across the state. 

Partnership mission projects (with the approximate number of volun- 
teers) for 2003 include Honduras (700 volunteers), Alaska (1,000 volunteers) 
and Southeast Asia (75 volunteers). To date, almost 1,300 volunteers have 
served with the Baptist Men's Medical/Dental Bus in 42 associations across 
the state. In addition, 1,400 people were trained for disaster relief ministries. 

The annual Baptist Men's Convention registered approximately 2,000 
participants with 880 boys attending the Royal Ambassador Congress. The 
Co-ed Student Missions conference registered 45 participants with 500 peo- 
ple scheduled to attend the Camporee Project. 

The estimated number of participants in Deep Impact and World Chang- 
ers include Deep Impact Honduras (130), Deep Impact Spring Weekend at 
Caswell (300), Deep Impact Charlotte set for November (300) and Mission 
Connect (1,050). 

Woman's Missionary Union of North Carolina provided training for 
over 2,000 people at the two weekend Missions Extravaganza meetings at 
Ridgecrest this year. During two weekend meetings, $13,454 was received 
to help with the Project HELP: Restorative Justice program. 

WMU-sponsored events in 2003, and number of participants, include 
Baptist Nursing Fellowship (190), Girls in Action Days (645), Children in 
Action Days (175), Camp Mundo Vista summer program (1,069), GA 
Mother/Daughter Camp (354) and Young Women on Mission Retreat (225). 

Other WMU-related ministries for the year included training 566 ladies 
in associational leadership meeting, providing a woman's prison retreat at 
Camp Mundo Vista for 60 inmates, send 2,300 Red Christmas Boxes, 134 
gifts to missionaries and conducting a ministers' wives retreat. 

Christian Women's Job Corp (CWJC), a national WMU program de- 
signed to help women who need to enter the job market, includes 16 sites 
across the state, involving more than 95 volunteers. Since 1999, CWJC has 
served approximately 100 participants per year. 

Student mission projects for 2003, and number of participants, include 
Youth Corp (21), BSU-funded (24), Wilmington Area Resort Ministries (4), 
Resort Area Ministry, Boone (2), Raleigh Area Ministry (2), Caraway (23), 
Mundo Vista (43), Praise and Worship Team (15) and Language Ministry

with migrants (1). 

International Student Ministry projects involve a fall conference at 
Ridgecrest (90 students) and a spring conference at Caswell (300 stu- 
dents). The BSC annual convention at Ridgecrest registered almost 400 stu- 
dents with 220 students attending the spring student leadership conference at 
Caraway. 

Baptist State Convention congregational leadership projects are held 
across the state throughout the year, including the ETC (Equipping Today's 
Church) meetings at Ridgecrest and Caswell), Children's Bible Drills and 
Youth Speakers' Tournaments, youth weeks at Caswell, and program-related 
training events on a statewide, regional and associational levels. 

In addition, the Baptist State Convention includes three social service 
agencies (Baptist Children's Homes, Baptist Retirement Homes and Baptist 
Hospital) and five college and universities (Chowan, Campbell, Wingate, 
Gardner-Webb and Mars Hill). The convention also supports two agencies-- 
the Biblical Recorder and Baptist Foundation. 

BIBLICAL RECORDER 

The Biblical Recorder is celebrating its 170th anniversary in 2003 
by remaining true to its original mission of publishing relevant news and 
fostering healthy dialogue among members of the Baptist State Convention 
of North Carolina. 

The world is far different than it was when Thomas Meredith 
founded the Biblical Recorder, but the importance of communication and 
conversation among Baptists remains unchanged, and the current landscape 
has many similarities with the one Meredith faced in 1833. Baptists were 
struggling for growth and shaping their identity in 1833. In time, Baptists 
came to dominate the denominational landscape of North Carolina, but a 
variety of societal, demographic and other changes have diminished the over- 
all Baptist presence once again. 

And, as early Baptists were often divided over theology, with some 
clinging to predestination while others championed free will, today's North 
Carolina Baptists face a changing landscape that features a variety of ways to 
express our Baptist identity. It has never been more important for North 
Carolina Baptists to be informed of the many issues affecting Baptist life, 
mission work and mutual cooperation. 

The Biblical Recorder exists to provide this needed service to Bap- 
tists in North Carolina and beyond. The Recorder staff works diligently to 
provide regular, dependable and balanced news coverage and analysis of the 
most significant matters relating to Baptist life. In addition, the Biblical Re- 
corder includes a variety of supportive resources and feature articles de- 
signed to encourage and inspire as well as to inform. 

70 



The Recorder was privately owned and operated in support of Bap- 
tist work in North Carolina until 1938, when the paper was purchased by the 
Baptist State Convention and incorporated as an agency of the convention. It 
serves as the official news publication of the Convention, and seeks to serve 
the full spectrum of its churches. 

The Biblical Recorder is widely acknowledged to be in the top 
echelon of state Baptist papers, winning national honors from the Baptist 
Communicator's Association for editorial writing in 2000, for design in 
2001, and for news writing in 2000, 2001, and 2002 -- including the associa- 
tion's grand prize for news writing in 200 1 . 

In addition to its printed form, the Biblical Recorder maintains a 
popular and rapidly growing presence on the World Wide Web at 
www.biblicalrecorder.org. The Web site provides much of each paper's con- 
tent online, as well as to access classified ads, online Bible study resources 
and a portal to other news services. Thousands of interested readers around 
the world consult the online version regularly. 

The Web presence became even more important in late 2003, as the 
Recorder shifted from a publication schedule of 40 issues per year to 27 
regular issues plus periodic special issues. The move, made as a matter of 
stewardship, coincided with the addition of new features and improvements 
to the Website, including more frequent news updates. 

As a BSCNC agency, the Biblical Recorder receives annual support 
from Cooperative Program gifts, making it possible to offer the Recorder at 
subscription rates below the actual cost. Subscription packets and free sam- 
ple issues are available. For more information, please contact:

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES OF NORTH CAROLINA 

Baptist make a (Iifferetice...Th\s summer Baptist Children's Homes had a 
very special guest on the Mills Home campus in Thomasville. Many Baptists 
will remember Patricia Sutherland. She has shared her story at multiple state 
conventions, and her life has been shared in Charity & Children on a couple 
of occasions. Patricia is a beautiful young woman and a rising senior at 

71 



Tocca Falls College in northern Georgia. Looking at Patricia today, you 
would not recognize her as the same little girl who came to Baptist Chil- 
dren's Homes 1 1 years ago. 

As a young child she lived with abusive, alcoholic and drug- 
addicted parents who forced her to lie about their abuse. The little girl was 
threatened with a pistol held to her head and made to sleep on cold hardwood 
floors. Her abuse and neglect were compounded by a severe medical condi- 
tion. Because her parents were unable to properly care for Patricia, she went 
months at a time without the daily medication she so desperately needed. 

Then one day, Patricia found the security she had longed for at our 
Broyhill Home in Clyde. But even at Broyhill Home her life wasn't easy. 
Patricia has Turner's syndrome, a condition affecting her balance and coordi- 
nation and stunting her growth. Because she was awkward and clumsy, other 
children made fun of her at school. But her physical problems only seemed 
to make her stronger. 

While at Mills Home this summer, Patricia was asked to share her 
story with the girls on campus. She boldly assured them that God has a plan 
for their life. But then she challenged the girls by telling them it is their 
choice. They can put their past behind them and trust God and follow His 
lead, or they can wander through life lost. 

Because of your help, children like Patricia are rescued from the 
jaws of hopelessness and despair, set on solid ground, supported by loving 
Christian men and women, and are given hope so they can realize their 
dreams- dreams that at one time in their lives, they could never imagine were 
possible. 

Baptists Respond to Needs Donating Towels, Bedding and Food. If you ask 

North Carolina Baptists for help, expect them to provide in a big way. When 
the word went out to North Carolina's WMU that Baptist Children's Homes 
needed towels and washcloths, hundreds of women in churches across the 
state provided them. Towels and washcloths flooded in to all BCH locations. 
When Baptists learned that pillows and sheets were needed in BCH cottages, 
an avalanche of bedding poured in. And BCH's first statewide food roundup 
is bringing great enthusiasm and response. 

14,640 Baptists Pray for North Carolina Children. More than one hundred 
BCH children and staff presented the Chain of Prayer at the 172nd Baptist 
State Convention in Winston-Salem. The chain consisted of 14,640 strips of 
brightly colored paper inscribed with the written prayers of North Carolina 
Baptist men, women, and children. Each prayer made up an individual link 
in the Chain of Prayer. The effort was a BCH initiative and was promoted in 
North Carolina Baptist Churches. The Chain of Prayer united thousands of 
people and represented their belief in the power of God to meet the needs 
voiced in the prayers. 

BCH Hosts National Child Care Executive Meeting. BCH president Mi- 

72 



chael C. Blackwell and Baptsit Children's Homes of North Carolina hosted 
the fifty-fifth annual meeting of the Baptist Child Care Executives April 22- 
24 in Greensboro, Directors and other top management of Baptist child care 
agencies representing as many as 19 states attended the annual meeting. The 
conference serves as a time of fellowship and continuing education for par- 
ticipants. A highlight took place Wednesday evening with "pigpickin' in 
Mayberry" at Mills Home in Thomasville. Children and staff recreated the 
sights and sounds of the popular sixties television program The Andy Griffith 
Show. 

Historic Ice Storm Wreaks Havoc. Mills Home in Thomasville, BCH's old- 
est facility and flagship campus, suffered major damage due to one of the 
worse ice storms to ever hit the Piedmont. The cost due to the loss, cleanup 
and reapairs reached tens of thousands of dollars. No injury or harm came to 
the children and staff. Duke Power called the ice storm the worst in its 100- 
year history. Parts of the campus remained without electricity for as long as 
five days. Baptists from across the state sent funds and relief groups to aid in 
the clean-up efforts reducing the storm's economic effects. 

North Carolina Baptist Church Donates Property and $100,000 to Help 
Build a New Group Home for Developmental^ Disabled Adults. Ashe- 
ville's Calvary Baptist Church dedicated property they donated to Baptist 
Children's Hoems and presented $100,000 to help construct the Alverta Bol- 
ick Home for developmentally disabled adults on June 8, 2003. The financial 
gift was made possible through the generosity of the late Alverta Bolick. The 
group home will be built adjacent to the church and provide a home for six 
residents. 

Baptist Children's Homes Faces Serious Financial Challenges. This year, 
Baptist Children's Homes took necessary actions to offset further economic 
hardships. With an overwhelming decline in income and a projected budget 
deficit of $4 million for fiscal 2003-2004, BCH cut the 2003-2004 budget 
(effective October 1, 2003). The cuts resulted in the closing of one or more 
cottages in four of BCH's Family Service Areas, the closing of Baptist Ma- 
ternity Home in Asheville, the elimination of the agency's Intensive Family 
Preservation Services, and a reduction of 68 and one half budgeted positions. 
(Due to positions currently vacant and the reassignment of some staff, the 
actual net loss of people was 3 1 .) 

BCH... Focused on the Future. Despite the trying times, Baptsit Children's 
Homes continues to be committed to providing only the highest quality of 
service. Children who come through BCH's doors continue to receive an 
abundance of love, care and healing. A dedicated staff serves and gives of 
themselves sacrificially. The lives of children and families are worth every 
effort. Although facing critical financial times, BCH holds true to its mission 
of "helping hurting children... healing broken families. " 

73 



The support of North Caroina Baptists through the Thanksgiving Offering, 
Cooperative Missions giving, church and individual gifts, memorials, honors, 
and estate gifts enables BCH to provide care for more than 2000 children 
through our locations across the state. Thank you, North Carolina Baptists, 
for your continued prayers and support. We could not do what we do with- 
out you.

BAPTIST FOUNDATION OF NORTH CAROLINA 

The mission of North Carolina Baptist Foundation since its inception in 1920 
has been to assist the Convention and its institutions and agencies in increas- 
ing an awareness among North Carolina Baptists of Christian estate steward- 
ship principles as a means of financially under girding churches, institutions 
and mission endeavors on a permanent basis. The uniqueness of the minis- 
tries and services provided by the institutions and General Board staff merits 
increased financial support. The Foundation accomplishes these objectives 
by offering assistance in estate planning counsel, Will preparation, planned 
giving, charitable remainder trusts, endowment funds and church fund man- 
agement. 

During 2002, the Foundation assisted individuals in establishing 28 endow- 
ment funds and 17 charitable remainder trusts totaling $1.5 million and re- 
ceived $3.3 million in contributions to existing endowments all of which will 
ultimately benefit countless Baptist causes on a permanent basis. Programs 
were provided for churches and associations during the year to promote 
Make Your Will Month, Christian estate stewardship, and church fund man- 
agement. Over $1.5 million from churches and institutions came under man- 
agement to enhance numerous ministries including scholarships, building 
funds, cemetery funds, benevolence funds, general operating funds and other 
various mission causes. Overall, the Foundation received $6.3 million in 
contributions during 2002 for Christian causes. 

The Foundation employs professional money managers to invest these funds 
according to an investment policy adopted by its Board. Four investment 
pools are offered: a growth fund, a balanced fund, an income fund and a 
fixed income fund. The Foundation uses the services of Salomon Smith 
Barney to help select top money managers and evaluate performance. As of 
December 31, 2002, the Foundation held $96.4 million under management. 

During 2002, our distributions totaled $5.8 million, with charity receiving 
$3.5 million and individuals, through trusts, receiving $2.3 million. During 
the 83-year history of The North Carolina Baptist Foundation, Inc., $23.1 

74 



million has been distributed to individuals and $40.3 million to Baptist 
churches, institutions and mission causes for a grand historical total of $63.4 
million.

BAPTIST HOSPITALS OF NORTH CAROLINA 

Meeting the Challenges of Health Care 

BAPTIST HOSPITAL AND NORTH CAROLINA BAPTISTS: 
EXTENDING THE HEALING TOUCH OF CHRIST 

North Carolina Baptist Hospital admitted its first patient on May 30, 
1923, culminating a vision of the Baptist State Convention to extend the 
healing ministry of Jesus Christ. Eighty years later, in 2003, we remain 
firmly committed to the original mission of providing the highest quality 
medical care marked by excellence, integrity, innovation, and compassion 
consistent with the teachings of Christ. This report highlights our partnership 
in missions with North Carolina Baptists. 

BAPTIST BENEVOLENT CARE FUND 

The Convention established the annual Mother's Day Offering in 
1924 to help patients in financial need pay their hospital bills, to lift heavy 
burdens, in the name of Jesus Christ and his love. Since that time every dol- 
lar of every gift has been used for that purpose-caring for children like Ha- 
leigh in her battle with cancer, and adults like Wade and Vickie. You have 
made a tremendous difference in their lives and many others just like them. 
Please read their inspiring stories of thankfulness in the new Mother's Day 
Offering web site (www.ncbhmothersday,org). Thank you, North Carolina 
Baptists, for goving $600,372 to this ministry in 2002! 

SCHOOL OF PASTORAL CARE 

The fruits of Cooperative Giving by North Carolina Baptists are 
evidenced in life-changing ministries of the School of Pastoral Care. Our 
mission is "to provide ministries of growth, hope, and healing in the Spirit 
of Christ." Thank you, North Carolina Baptists, for extending the healing 
reach of Christ to thousands of hurting people through our ministries. 

Baptist Hospital CareNet Counseling Centers, our Department 
of Pastoral Counseling, annually provides over 24,500 hours of counseling 
at 22 locations across our state. This ministry brings emotional and spiritual 
healing, consistent with the compassion of Christ, to those who have been 
broken. Our counselors are licensed professionals with deeply held personal 
faith. They extend the ministry of churches, receiving many referrals from 
Bpatist pastors on behalf of church members who are hurting. Approxi- 
mately 40% of our counseling hours are provided to Baptists. 



75 



The Center for Congregational Health has continued to develop 
vital ministries. Nearly 600 church leaders received training in the past year 
through the Center's programs of leadership development "The Pastor as 
Spiritual Guide" and "Young Leaders" programs have proven to be highly 
beneficial for N.C. Baptist ministers, deepening their faith as spiritual leaders 
for their churches. Approximately 25 churches per month have benefited 
from the Center's consulting ministry. Initial, expert consultations are pro- 
vided free to N.C. Baptist churches thanks to Cooperative Giving. Inten- 
tional Interim ministers trained by the Center continue to serve churches in 
our state, across the nation, and Australia. Mentoring programs for young 
ministers are also being provided. 

The Department of Chaplaincy and Pastoral Education provides 
ministry to patients, families, and staff through more than 61,000 pastoral 
contacts each year, extending great compassion and hope in the name of Je- 
sus Christ. Specialized training in hospital ministry was provided to 63 stu- 
dents in the past year, making our Clinical Pastoral Education program one 
of the largest in the nation. 

The Department of Church and Community Relations receives 
no Cooperative Program funds, but serves as a vital liaison to N.C. Baptist 
churches. The department ministers to over 150 Baptists per year by facili- 
tating physician appointments or helping others with concerns about medical 
bills. Many of those who are helped have no health insurance and are bur- 
dened by financial need. 

ADDITIONAL HIGHLIGHTS AT N. C. BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

Ministry to Ministers and Their Families- 

• Baptist Hospital provides a subsidy of up to 25% for the hospital bills of 
N.C. Baptist ministers and their families. This amounted to $79,248 in 
FY 2003. The subsidy comes from the hospital's W.K McGee Patient 
Service Fund, with assistance from the Mother's Day Offering as 
needed. 

• The Ministers Care Plan provides a subsidy to full-time, ordained min- 
isters serving North Carolina Baptist churches, and their immediate fam- 
ily members, who need the support of counseling to recover from emo- 
tional pain and stress. Clients pay $20 per session at a CareNet Counsel- 
ing Center. The Baptist State Convention and CareNet pay for the re- 
mainder of the cost. Please call Rev. Paul Mullen, Director of Church 
and Community Relations, for more information (336-716-3027). 

Ranked Among the Nation 's Best Hospitals 

• North Carolina Baptist Hospital is ranked in the top 50 among 
"America's Best Hospitals" according to the July 2003 issue of U.S. 
News and World Report. 

• Our hospital continues to be ranked in the top 1 percent in patient satis- 
faction among our peers in the United States, according to Press Ganey, 

76 



the health care industry's top patient satisfaction measurement firm.

Nursing, demonstrating outstanding nursing leadership and high quality 
patient care. Baptist Hospital was one of the first hospitals in the nation 
to earn this recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, 
the nation's leading nursing credentialing organization. 

• Our Medical Center's cancer treatment programs are ranked 21st in the 
nation by U.S. News and World Report. A new facility for our Com-

CLOSING WORDS FROM THE PRESIDENT 

The initial vision of North Carolina Baptists to extend the healing 
touch of Christ has unfolded in remarkable ways at Baptist Hospital over the 
past 80 years. As Christ ministered to those who were broken in body, mind, 
or spirit and made them whole, we continually strive to follow his example. 
We consider it a sacred responsibilitya dn profound privilege to serve him in 
this mission of healing. We are thankful to you, North Carolina Baptists, for 
being our partners in ministry.

BAPTIST RETIREMENT HOMES OF NORTH CAROLINA 

Proudly serving older adults since 1951 
Making Life for Older Adults.. .the "Best of Times" 

Baptist Retirement Homes continues to move forward with strength in meet- 
ing the needs of North Carolina's fastest growing age group. ..its senior popu- 
lation. Of particular interest to North Carolina Baptists, are the growing 
numbers of Older Adults who deal with dementia-related conditions such as 
Alzheimer's Disease. In North Carolina, approximately 50 percent of those 
who reach age 85 struggle with some measure of dementia. The Kulynych 
Memory Enhanced Residence at the brookridge Retirement Community in 
Winston-Salem, the Fowler Memory Enhanced Residence at the Western 
North Carolina Baptist Home in Asheville, and the Memory Enhanced Resi- 
dence at the Gardens of Taylor Glen Retirement Community provide envi- 
ronments designed to "enhance" and "retain" the short and long-term mem- 
ory of those struggling with such disorders. The Hamilton Baptist Home and 
The Taylor House also provide exceptional programs for Older Adults with 
dementia. 

77 



The picture shared with this report reflects the kind of environments 
mentioned above that allow residents to receive care in a setting that feels 
like Home. 

Because of the generous financial support received from North 
Carolina Baptists for the convention's "poor elderly" population, Baptist 
Retirement Homes has been able to provide more than $1.7 million in be- 
nevolent care in 2002. Thank You, North Carolina Baptists!

COUNCIL ON CHRISTIAN HIGHER EDUCATION 

Baptist State Convention of North Carolina 

Christian higer education represents one of the enduring values of the Baptist 
State Convention. Since it's founding in 1830, North Carolina Baptists have 
spported Christian higher education through gifts to the Cooperative Mis- 
sions Budget, Baptist State Convention. 

Our state and Convention depends upon the graduates of our institu- 
tions to lead us. The classrooms across our state are filled with teachers who 
have received their training from one of our campuses. North Carolina Busi- 
nesses are staffed with people who have been challenged during their formal 
education on our Baptist campuses to consider the ethical and moral conse- 
quences of their decisions. Our churches are filled with God called men and 
women who have undergone academic preparation to lead our churches, as- 
sociations and Convention. Where would we be without those graduates? 

This success story has been made possible as a result of the faithful- 
ness of North Carolina Baptists who support the Baptist State Convention 
through their gifts to the Cooperative Missions Budget. 

Our five Baptist campuses take pride in their association with our 
Convention. Campbell, Chowan, Gardner-Webb, mars Hill and Wingate are 
institutions of Christian distinction. Each considers their Baptist witness to 
be a hallmark of their institutional mission. 

Campbell, Chowan, Gardner-Webb, mars Hill and Wingate wel- 
come the challenge to prepare the next generation of leaders to serve our 
state and our Lord. A large majority of the students on each campus identify 
themselves as Baptist. Among those who are Baptist, some are receiving 
special financial support as a result of your faithfulness to our Convention's 
mission. 

78 



Last year six hundred eighty-seven (687) North Carolina Baptists 
received special scholarship aid made possible by your gifts to the Conven- 
tion. This group represents five hundred four (504) different churches and 
seventy-three (73) different associations. 

Churches that give through Optional Giving Plans B & C are help- 
ing another special group of North Carolina Baptists. Both giving plans 
make it possible for the Council to release theological grants to North Caro- 
lina Baptists who have heard God's Call and who are engaged in the pursuit 
of their first professional theological degree. Last year, 320 recipients re- 
ceived this special assistance. As one student told the Council office, "That 
grant was a major life-saver for me." His comments reflect other students' 
sentiments, as well. 

What does the future hold? 

No one knows for sure; but we know that our North Carolina Baptist 
Colleges/universities will continue to receive your students and provide op- 
portunities for them to grow intellectually and spiritually. We can be assured 
that when they graduate from our campuses, they will carry on with the tradi- 
tion of those who preceded them through their service to our state and Con- 
vention.

HISTORY OF THE CHURCHES 

IN THE GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

October 1, 2002 - September 30, 2003 

God is good.. .every year He continues to bless each of our churches 
in the Green River Association. It is amazing what God will do when we, as 
His followers, will follow His leadership. This year has really been a time of 
testing through the storms that ravaged the coastal areas, the Iraq war that 
has disrupted so many families, the economy of our country isn't good, the 
losses of so many jobs in our county, and elsewhere. We still met many 
needs of those who needed help. Our Baptist Men have gone to great lengths 
to help, we have been so willing to help those who are in need of financial 
help. But we carry on with the many ministries the Lord has made possible 
for us to carry out. So many nice improvements are still being done to so 
many of our churches. Following is some of the fine work that was carried 
out this past year among our churches.

First Baptist Church of Forest City was organized in 1848 for the purpose 
of advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, gathering together for worship 
and fellowship, and educating and equipping each member for effective 
witnessing and ministry. This is a chronicle of those ministries, commu- 
nity events, and mission efforts designed to accomplish our purpose.

participated in the GRBA Bible Drill and in our Family Ministry Week.

Handbell Festival, Adult Handbell Festival, and Youth Choir and Instru- 
mental Festival. At Christmas we combined with choirs from First Pres-

cate the renovations to our pipe organ (June 1). We were blessed with a

Long Branch Road 

This church year has been filled with special projects. The main project 
was helping financially with the safe arrival of Gracie Ruppe into our 
lives. Greg (Preacher Jerry's son) and Jennifer found out that their baby- 
to-be had spina bifida. They also were informed of a special procedure at 
Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee that could be performed 
prior to the birth, unfortunately their insurance refused to cover the cost. 
Greg and Jennifer brought their need to God and the church. The cost of 
the surgery was estimated at $40,000. The church, community, state and 
country came together and not only met the needed monies but exceeded 
it. We are very proud to have Gracie in our church now. 
This year we also had Laurie Crowe go to Miami for surgery. We helped 
Preacher Jerry with the cost of the trip to be with Laurie and her husband, 
Greg during the surgery. 

The youth painted the preacher's house this year while he and his family 
were on vacation. 

Adult II class fixed several meals through the year for Tipton's Rest 
Home. 

Vacation Bible School was a huge success with the daily average of 
sixty-nine. 

We also purchased new and movable shelving for the storage rooms in 
the fellowship hall. A new deck was added to the kitchen entrance of the 
hall. 

On September 14, we had our 2nd annual observance of the 9/1 1 tragedy 
by honoring our emergency workers. We had members of various fire 
departments, Forest City Police, Sheriffs Department, and EMS with us. 
Lunch followed the service. 
The Lord has blessed us again this year. 

Main Street 

The Lord has blessed Main Street in many different ways this past year. 
We are fortunate to have hired Stephen Matheny as our Minister of Mu- 
sic. He has led the choir in an Easter Cantata and many musical specials. 
Two different Bible studies for women were started with approximately 
sixteen women taking advantage of that ministry. The Christmas season 

85 



found us with a willing heart to help with Operation Christmas Child. 
We sent around 85 shoeboxes to this ministry. In January, we offered a 
couples retreat. This was a great time of teaching and growth for our 
listeners to call in their prayer requests. Our youth enjoyed many activi- 
ties including a great youth ski trip to beech Mountain. The summer ar- 
rived with an awesome VBS. The Lord was blessed with the baptizing of 
3 children. In July, we had a combined worship service with Sulphur 
Springs at Crowe park. We enjoyed softball, food, fellowship and a time 
of worship. "Marvelous Mondays of August" were a combination of 
services with four local churches. Each Monday, we were blessed with 
great music and messages from different pastors. Our WMU held several 
local mission projects, such as Bibles for a local boys home, school sup- 
plies for needy children and helping with Christmas Cheer. Our church 
year came to an end with a new session of FAITH Sunday School evan- 
gelism, a new roof on the sanctuary and a defensive driving class for our 
van drivers. We thank the Lord for so many blessings this past year and 
are excited about His plans for the upcoming year.

In September, Super Buddies, our after-school tutoring ministry, began 
it's 4 th year with 1 st - 3 rd graders from Spindale Elementary School. Lori 
Benton and Cynthia Jones served as the coordinators for this ministry, 

91 



which serves 12-15 children. Also in September, our church participated 
at the Spindale Correctional Facility - providing chapel services each 
Tuesday night of the month to the inmates. 

The children of our church were "treated" to a special 'Trunk or Treat" 
on October 3 l sl . This was a wonderful alternative to trick or treating and 
our members enjoyed a special time of passing out treats from the trunks 
of their cars! This was held in conjunction with a Fall Family Festival on 
the same night, where we enjoyed a hot dog supper, costume contest, and 
game night. 

Spencer partnered once again with the Dept. Of Social Services during 
the month of December to provide Christmas gifts for children in our 
community in need of toys and clothes. Also in December, we joined 
forces with some of the Spindale Area churches for our 3 rd Annual Tree 
Lighting! Children of Spindale made decorations for the tree, and we 
gathered on the corner of N. Oak and Main St. for a service of w r orship. 
The rest of the Advent season was full of activity around our church. Our 
children's choirs presented an Advent program of music and drama, and 
then our Adult Choir joined together to present "Mary, Did You Know" 
during a special Sunday worship service which included a multi-media 
presentation. The youth of our church present "The Best Christmas Pag- 
eant Ever" on the Sunday before Christmas. Our church family also gath- 
ered to go caroling to our Homebound Members during this month. 
January was an exciting month for Spencer Baptist Church. We began 
the process of renovating our sanctuary. During these renovations, wor- 
ship was held each week in our Family Life Center. This month was also 
a time for our deacons and their spouses to participate in our Deacon Re- 
treat at the Hollifield Leadership Center at Lake Hickory. 
In February, Spencer members participated in the "Souper Bowl of Car- 
ing" project to help feed the hungry/homeless in our area. During the 
Sunday evening services through February and March, each of our mem- 
bers was encouraged to participate in "Discovering Your Spiritual Gifts" 
taught by our pastor. 

Spencer hosted and participated once again in the Weekly Lenten Ser- 
vices sponsored by Spindale Area Churches. Area churches took turns 
providing the Worship Time and the Lunch Meal. These services were 
held each Tuesday at noon throughout Lent. 

During the month of March, we began the training for our new Outreach 
Ministry - G.R.O.W. This is an acronym for God Rewards Our Work. 
G.R.O.W. is a weekly visitation & communication program that allows 
members to use their gifts for outreach in a variety of ways. After the 
training was completed, we launched the G.R.O.W. program in April 
with 42 participants. 

In April, we held our Annual Easter Egg Hunt for children. Easter Sun- 
day, the community was invited to our Sunrise Service, which was held 
this year on the front steps of the church and followed by a full breakfast 
in the Family Life Center.

In May, we were finally able to move back into our newly renovated 
sanctuary! We held special u re-dedication" services on May 18, followed 
by a Dinner on the Grounds. 

Vacation Bible School was held the second week of June. We enrolled 
222 participants this year, with an average attendance of 180! Also in 
June, our youth spent a week at Caswell. 

In July. A group of our youth and young adults left for a mission trip to 
Tyler, West Virginia, where they were involved in construction ministries 
for a week. 

In August, our WMU sponsored "Christmas in August." The evening 
began with a traditional Christmas dinner, with turkey, dressing, and des- 
serts! Special guests for the evening were some of the children from the 
Baptist Children's Homes. They, along with Lloyd Fish, who is a re- 
gional director with this organization, shared with us about their experi- 
ences in our Children's Homes. In response to the needs shared with us, 
our church collected pantry products and "pounded" the Children's 
Homes with great items!

The church year 2002-2003 can be best described by the Apostle Paul in 
Romans 1 1:33 "O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowl- 
edge of God!" We have experienced the riches of God in both our church 
life and individual lives. In our church life: 

1. Through the ministry of Sunday School with all our teachers faithfully 
teaching the Word of God. 

2. Through our church choir as they minister to our hearts every Sunday 
through music and song. 

3. Through the deacons as they serve being the spiritual leaders of the 
church. 

4. Through the staff as they do the work that is required every week in min- 
istering to youth and children, in preparing bulletins, financial reports, 
paying of bills serving God faithfully. 

5. Through our Revival services 

6. Through our Vacation Bible School 

7. Through our youth and children camps 

8. Through our Senior Adult trips 

9. Through the many that have joined our church by letter 

10. Through the many that came to Christ and were baptized 

1 1 . Through those who have gone to be with the Lord and wait for us 

One cannot but stop and say with full assurance that any year the Lord 
allows us to be a part of what He is doing in all our churches, we say, "O 
the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!" To 
God be all the glory. Amen

The 2002-2003 church year carried the focus of Developing Diligent Dis- 
ciples. West Memorial Church got back to the basics as we, as a church 
body, were encouraged and challenged to really look at our beliefs and 
actions. During the first four months, we studied the development of the 
Bible to understand our direction. We looked at such things as reasons 
why the Bible is trustworthy, how the Bible was revealed by God, and the 
message of salvation. Into December and on through February we looked 
at the Believer. Many of our teachers took this time to go through the 
Survival Kit For New Believers as we began to look at and understand 
what we believe as Christians and why we believe it. March through 
May took us even further as we began to look at the origin and the mis- 
sion of the Baptist Faith. Most of our Sunday School teachers were tak- 
ing their classes through the book Basics for Baptists during this seasonal 
study. Finally, June through August has focused on the Behavior of the 
Christian. What should we be reflecting as a Disciple of Christ? 
Each month focused on a new memory verse dealing with the Bible, the 
Believer, the Baptist, and the Behavior. The congregation was asked and 
encouraged to learn these verses together for a total of twelve memory 
verses by the end of the church year. 

As we studied the Development of Diligent Disciples, WMC was given 
many opportunities to minister and evangelize. We participated in the 
Jesus Video Project of Rutherford County by praying, making phone 
calls, and visiting those on our list. We also took part in Samaritan's 
Purse, a ministry to provide Christmas gifts to children overseas. Our 
children learned much about giving as they were led in participation of 
this project. 

In the area of membership, we had four baptisms and nine people partici- 
pate in new members classes. Out of those attending new members 
classes, we welcomed Michael Brothen of Southern California as our new 
Praise & Worship Minister, and his wife, Jen, as a new recruit to the 
WMC praise team. Also, welcomed Duane Martin as Deaf Pastor to the 
Deaf congregation of WMU, along with his wife, Dana. These were both 
areas of prayer that God divinely answered, proving the fruits of a consis- 
tent prayer life as we began and ended the 2002-2003 church year with a 
24 hour Prayer & Fast! Also, the month of May was a time of celebration 
as our Pastor, Jeff Parker, graduated from Anderson ville Theological 
Seminary with a Doctor of Theology degree! 

God has blessed WMU with a wonderful church year, and we look for- 
ward with anticipation to the new year (2003-2004) as we catch God's 
wave of opportunity of Reconciliation! 
West Point 

Our church year began with our continuation of evangelistic efforts. Our 
sixth semester of FAITH Sunday School Evangelism Strategy was held 
September 3 — November 26, 2002 with our seventh semester beheld Feb- 
ruary 25-May 20, 2003. On December 13-14, 2002 we witnessed to over 
800 people through a "Live Walk-Thru Nativity" held at West Point. 

94 



Vacation Bible School was held June 1-6, 2003 with an average of 143 in 
attendance. "Commission Awareness Week" was held November 3-6, 
2002 with Anton Roos from Port Sheptone, South Africa. Ten church 
members participated in a Mission Trip to Port Shepstone, South Africa, 
June 26-July 9, 2003. There they held Bible School for the children, led 
in worship services and evangelistic visits, worked on a new church 
building and visited S.A.N.T.A. hospital. Prior to the trip, many fund 
raising events were held in financial support of the trip. West Point 
hosted the Mountain State Fair Training held August 26, 2003. We also 
participated in the Mountain State Fairy Ministry on September 1 1, 2002. 
Our church was excited about those of our youth who attended the 
"FAITH Youth Challenge" which was held in Daytona, Florida; July 
21 — July 26, 2003. There some of them were trained in FAITH Evangel- 
ism, while others were trained in Basic Apologetics. They all took part in 
Beach Ministry, Backyard Bible Clubs, Sports Ministry and Community 
Outreach. 

A Teachers' Training, "First Steps Toward Faith", was held September 
16 and 23, 2002 to better equip our children's leaders and teachers. We 
were proud to ordain one of our newly elected deacons, Jason Sain, in an 
Ordination Service held October 13, 2002. Several of our young people 
did a great job as they participated in the Church Bible Drill held March 
16, 2003, Association Bible Drill held March 30, 2003, as well as, the 
State Bible Drill on May 3, 2003. Our second annual Johnny Hill Memo- 
rial Fund Raising Auction held April 26, 2003 was a great success. 
Many of our Celebration Choir members participated in the Associational 
Choir presentation of the Musical, "Experiencing God" at Mountain 
Creek Baptist Church October 28, 2002. They also presented a Christmas 
musical for the morning service on December 22. 2002. Throughout the 
year, our Senior Adult Choir, youth Choir, and Children's Choirs partici- 
pated in various programs and worship services. On March 16, 2003, the 
church voted to begin a building program to accommodate the continuing 
growth of the church body. 

On July 13, 2003 the church voted to call Mr. Steve Hardin as Minister of 
Music and Youth; he accepted the call and began his ministry July 27, 
2003. 

As a church fellowship we enjoyed various events. Our annual Fall Fel- 
lowship Festival was held October 19, 2002. The ladies attended a 
Women's Retreat at South Mountain, November 15-17, 2002. Our Sen- 
ior Adults participated in various outings, as well as our children and 
youth. There were two highlight events for the children. One was a 
"Family Kamp-Out" held at Green River. The other was a "First Thanks- 
giving Day Celebration" where they experienced many of the same ac- 
tivities that took place with the Pilgrims such as gathering vegetables 
from a garden, milking a cow, making bread and soup, playing games and 
sharing in prayer and worship. We enjoyed our Thanksgiving Service on 
November 24, 2002, as well as, our Christmas Dinner on December 22,

2002 and Candlelight Service on December 24, 2002. Homecoming was

GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION PERSONNEL POLICIES 

These policies give guidance concerning the calling, ministry and relation- 
ship of the Association to the Director of Associational Missions. Also, poli- 
cies are included that give guidance to the employing of a secretary. Main- 
taining and/or revising these polices is the responsibility of the Personnel

sonnel Committee will be responsible for developing needed polices.

for a needed ministry, he may initiate this ministry in the name of 
the association with the approval of the Missions Development

REPORTS 

DIRECTOR OF MISSIONS 

The Association year 2003-2004 saw the strong continuation of mis- 
sion and ministry opportunities in the Association as well as some new ven- 
tures. Resource Team Leaders led in events and some new Leaders took posi- 
tions during the year. I look forward to even stronger leadership from these 
leaders in 2004-2005. 

The Rest Stop Ministry was a blessing to many people as they trav- 
eled. Churches hosted the ministry and some on a consistent basis. I appreciate 
all who gave time to the ministry. In the next few years the Association will 
likely face a decision about the building as the State will be widening hwy 221. 
When information is known, you will be informed. 

Josh Gettys led the Resort Area Missions Ministry the summer and 
from the reports of the campground owners, he did an outstanding job. This 
was his second year to participate in the ministry and I appreciate his leader- 
ship. 

Your support of the Christian Character Scholarships allowed the 
committee to award sizeable amounts to three students. Investing in someone's 
education is always a wise move. 

The fellowship and delicious meals once again marked the Minister's 
Conferences this year. Rev. Rick Brewer led in an excellent manner and Rev. 
Ron Boone prepared delicious meals. This is a vital way for our ministers to 
know one another and support each other. 

The churches responded in a strong and caring manner to the Moun- 
tain State Fair Ministry this year as in previous years. I'm always blessed by 
your support. There were 11-12 churches that were represented at the fair on 
September 14 when GRBA hosted the ministry and then on September 15 West 
Point hosted the day. In addition to this, there were many more churches that 
supplied hygiene kits, bears, shoes, clothes and bracelets. Once again there 
were fair workers who asked, "Why are you folks doing this?" This really 
opens a door for witnessing and ministry. "Thank you" to all the churches that 
supported this ministry. 

Mrs. Yvonne Holland concluded her term as WMU Director this year. 
I appreciate the love and devotion Yvonne has for missions and her encourag- 
ing others to be committed to missions. 

Our churches financially supported the ministry of the Association in a 
strong manner this year. Your gifts to the Nannie Newsome Offering were the 
strongest we have seen in a number of years as you gave about $1 100 over the 
goal. Thank you to you, our churches, for your financial support. 

In this year we brought under watchcare Maranatha Baptist Church. 
Meeting in Spindale, they are cooperating with the Association and we look 
forward to years of continued support.

I also want to say a "Thank you" to our churches as I experience from 
you acceptance and welcome when I visit to worship with you. I am blessed by 
the warm greetings and appreciation for being in attendance. I also appreciate 
your prayers related to health issues I have experienced. It has been a blessing 
to know of your prayers. And as I finish this report, I also want to express to 
Teresa "Thank you" for your devotion to the Lord and service to our churches 
as Administrative Assistant. She has been with the Association fifteen years as 
of October 2004. 

Thank you for your prayers and support of Green River Baptist Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Rev. Billy Honeycutt 

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL 

Vacation Bible Schools were held in the majority of our 35 churches this year. 
We received reports from the following churches: Adaville, Cane Creek, Long 
Branch Road, Green Hill, Maranatha, Mountain View (R), Pleasant Hill, West 
Point. Together these churches reported a total of 734 students enrolled with an 
average attendance of 594. There were 7 decisions to accept Christ. Thank you 
to all, for your prayers, support and hard work. Serving together to reach our 
young people for the Lord is extremely rewarding! 

HISPANIC BAPTIST MISSION 
"CRISTO VIVE" 

During the past six months a group of 1 1 members of the mission 
most of them leaders or members with some responsibilities within the church, 
they started attending at Fruitland Bible Institute. The more excited motivation 
for them is that the classes are taught in Spanish on Tuesday and Thursday. 
The total of students at the class is 20 and we are proud to know that 1 1 of them 
are from our mission "Cristo Vive", they just finished up their first semester 
and will start the second next week. All of them are expecting to finish and 
graduate as pastors, evangelists, missionaries and church planters. 

The house that was purchased for the mission has been a tremendous 
challenge for the ministry and it has been used wisely for all the ministries that 
we have now. Since we started using the house the mission has been growing 
with new Sunday School classes for children, youth and adults, we also use the 
house for offices, fellowship and special meetings. 

Our attendance at the Sunday morning services reaches 100 averages. 
At Sunday School we have 55, on Monday night at the Women's Ministry the 
attendance is 15, Wednesday night service average 70, on Saturday night the 
Youth average 15. 

We are really thankful for God's support, your support and the Green 
River and Sandy Run Associations. To God is Glory! ! 

Respectfully submitted, 
Rev. Jairo Contreras, pastor

CHRISTIAN CHARACTER SCHOLARSHIP 

Three students were each awarded scholarships of $ 1 ,000 as a result of your 
contributions and from the investments with the North Carolina Baptist 
Foundation. The students were Jessica Piercy of Rutherfordton, Second Bap- 
tist, Christy Wilson of Chimney Rock Baptist Church and of Michelle Smith 
of Adaville Baptist Church. This ministry of the Association was begun 
about 10 years ago to offer a tangible expression of encouragment and sup- 
port to high school seniors as they prepare to move to higher education. 
Their demonstration of Christian Character during high school will carry 
them as they continue their education and recognizing that through these 
scholarships is a small part in their journey. Applications are available from 
the Assocation office for any high school senior from churches in our Asso- 
ciation. Thanks to those who made contributions and for your wisdom to 
invest money with the NCBF. A basic investment of $3 1 ,000 is used for 
generating interest that is part of the scholarship awards.

RESORT AREA MISSIONS 

During the 2004 summer, Mr. Josh Gettys led the Ministry in the Lake Lure/ 
Chimney Rock area. Worship services were held in Hickory Nut Falls 
Campground, Dogwood Travel Park, Lake Lure RV and Travel Park and 
River Creek Campground. Churches supported this ministry by providing 
items for the "Kids Fun Bags" that are always well received by children and 
parents. These bags contain coloring books, crayons, pencil, stickers, a 
childs tract and many other child appropriate items. This was Josh's second 
summer to lead in the ministry and reports from the campground owners 
were positive of his leadership. Thanks to our churches for your support of 
this ministry.

INSTITUTIONAL REPORTS 
ANNUITY BOARD 

After a tumultuous three year period resulting in a dramatic economic down- 
turn which adversely affected retirement accounts of millions of Americans a 
dramatic rebound occurred during the last year. As a result, the asset base of 
the Annuity Board gained over 1 billion dollars in one year for the first time 
since the Annuity Board was established in 1918 to serve ministers and em- 
ployees of Southern Baptist churches. Concurrently, many participant retire- 
ment accounts recouped much of the funds which evaporated during the 
downturn. The downturn presented a serious challenge to our office in as- 
sisting participants with meaningful educational materials and resources to 
make wise investment decisions. 

Secondly, the ongoing national health care crisis continues to present serious 
challenges to our churches who strive to be responsible employers by provid- 
ing adequate medical insurance in a rapidly escalating cost environment. To 
assist in this effort, the Annuity Board responded this year by offering new 
medical insurance plans. These new plans offer more flexibility with varying 
levels of deductibles and monthly rates. Along with the new plans, the Board 
emphasized a three-step approach to address the rising cost of health care. 
First, the Annuity Board is aggressively managing costs and continuing to 
create plans that provide more options for participants. Second, participants 
are encouraged to develop healthy habits related to eating and exercise. And, 
third, churches need to take the initiative, if at all possible, to provide medi- 
cal coverage as a benefit for their ministers and staff rather than as a part of 
the salary package. Those church employees who live within the constraints 
of an antiquated "pay package" approach have seen a dramatic decline in 
disposable income if they have tried to maintain adequate medical insurance 
for themselves and their families. 

Thirdly, as a result of actions taken by messengers at the annual meeting of 
the Southern Baptist Convention in Indianapolis, the Annuity Board gained 
permission to serve evangelical ministry organizations outside the SBC and 
to change the official name of the Annuity Board to GuideStone Financial 
Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention. The name change will be- 
come official with an affirmative vote at next year's annual convention in 
Nashville, Tennessee. 

Fourthly, the Endowment ministry of the Annuity Board continued its work 
to make Southern Baptists aware of the tragic plight of retired ministers and 
their widows who were unable to plan adequately for retirement. Individuals 
and churches responded with open hearts and open hands as they helped to 
underwrite the financial assistance given to those who are in desperate need. 
More than 3,000 persons in our convention presently receive financial assis- 
tance with 335 residing in North Carolina. 

73 



As of May 31, 2004, North Carolina participants in the retirement plan 
moved above 5,200 in 2,332 (61%) of our churches. Our goal is to have all 
of our churches actively participating in the retirement plan provided by the 
Annuity Board of the SBC. 

In closing, we remain committed to serve all of our churches, ministers, and 
other church employees. For more information related to products or ser- 
vices, call the Baptist State Convention of NC at 1.800.395.5102 extensions

BAPTIST RETIREMENT HOMES 

of North Carolina, Incorporated 

"Lord... yon have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for 
me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. " -Psalm 16:5-6 

Because of your generosity Psalm 16 is a fitting scripture for the over 700 
Older Adults who reside at the Baptist Retirement Homes of North Caro- 
lina... 

Their lot has been made secure- 
All of your gifts through the Cooperative Giving Plans of the Baptist State 
Convention, through the February North Carolina Offering for Older Adults 
and through direct gifts from the churches are designated to provide care for 
those who otherwise could not receive care. Many of our Assisted Living 
care residents and the majority of our Nursing Care residents receive finan- 
cial assistance from you. Furthermore our promise to each of our residents is 
care that will last for as long as they live. 

Their boundary lines have fallen in pleasant places- 

At the Western North Carolina Baptist Home in Asheville, at Brookridge 
Retirement Community in Winston-Salem, at The Gardens of Taylor Glen in 
Concord, at The Taylor House in Albemarle and at Hamilton Baptist Home 
in northeastern North Carolina - beauty, security and comfort are found in 
full measure. 

They have a delightful inheritance- 

At each of the Homes the ministry of a Baptist Chaplain lifts the hearts of our 
residents. The enrichment and recreational opportunities at each Home make 
for an enjoyable lifestyle. Day after day the high quality of care that is given 
speaks of the care of a loving Heavenly Father, helping to make life for our 
Aging Saints... The Best of Times!

COUNCIL ON CHRISTIAN HIGHER EDUCATION 

Baptist State Convention of North Carolina 

GREA T WORKS STAND THE TEST OF TIME 

The classics. They are the books that are required reading in class- 
rooms around the world. They are the masterpieces that hang in Louvre and 
other great museums. They are the compositions from Beethoven, Bach, Mo- 
zart, Strauss and countless others that are taught and studied and appreciated 
generation after generation. 

What makes them classics? What makes them stand the test of time? 
Put simply, these works were developed by people who took painstaking care 
with their craft. Attention was paid to every individual detail as if the very 
life of the work itself depended on it. Love and devotion and skill were com- 
bined with each vision to produce an explosion of creativity and unique ex- 
pression. 

If these explanations truly define the classics and the great works, 
then the Baptist colleges of North Carolina belong in that very category. Five 
institutions that define the spirit and commitment of North Carolina Baptists 
draw their very essence from the North Carolina Baptist State Convention, an 
institution that was created in part to fulfill the mission of Christian higher 
education in this state. 

Begun in 1830, the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina has 
stood the test of time. Using the same qualities as the great composers, artists 
and authors from throughout the centuries, the Baptist State Convention has 
poured love and devotion and care into the pursuit of offering only the finest 
in college education. 

Campbell University, Chowan College, Gardner- Webb University, 
Mars Hill College and Wingate University are the five institutions affiliated 
with the convention. Why is that important? Because heritage and history 
make for strong foundations. With the support received from the convention 

75 



through scholarships, resources, prayer, encouragement and leadership, these 
institutions grow stronger each year in reputation, prestige, character, quality 
and respect. 

Gifts to the Cooperative Missions Budget of the Baptist State Con- 
vention of NC last year made it possible for 499 members from 316 conven- 
tion related churches to attend our five affiliated institutions of higher educa- 
tion. Some of the recipients would not have been able to pursue their dream 
of a degree from an accredited college or university without the financial 
assistance provided by generous Baptists like you.

BAPTIST HOSPITAL AND NORTH CAROLINA BAPTISTS 

PARTNERS IN MINISTRY 

The mission of North Carolina Baptist Hospital, "to provide and advance 
excellent healthcare, embracing the healing presence of God," reflects 
our distinctive heritage of extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. 
Since 1923 we have been privileged and grateful to be partners in mission 
with North Carolina Baptists, touching the lives of hurting people with great 
hope and strengthening the ministries of churches. 

THE MOTHER'S DAY OFFERING: 

PARTNERS IN BENEVOLENT CARE 

Real Needs. . .Real Hope. . .In the Name of Christ and His Love 

Thank you, North Carolina Baptists, for giving compassionate witness to the 
love of Christ through the Mother's Day Offering! Every dollar of every gift 
($584,958 in 2003) relieves the anxious burden of hospital bills for our pa- 
tients in serious financial need. Having no where else to turn for help, they 
find Christ reaching to them through you. A recent recipient, suffering from 
life-threatening illness and worried sick about the burden of her hospital bill, 
received a letter that changed her life. The words of grace resounded, "Your 
hospital bill has been paid by compassionate and mission-minded North 

76 



Carolina Baptists in the name of Jesus Christ and His love. " With deep 
thankfulness she replied, "/ greatly appreciate the love of God that North 
Carolina Baptists have shared with me. This gift in the name of Jesus 
Christ has lifted a heavy burden, and I could never say thank you enough. 
God bless those who give for their compassion. " The needs of many patients 
far exceed the resources available to help them. Please give generously so 
more can be helped in the name of Christ's love. 

THE SCHOOL OF PASTORAL CARE: 

PARTNERS IN MINISTRIES OF GROWTH, HOPE, AND HEALING 

North Carolina Baptists, by Cooperative Missions Giving, provide healing 
ministry to thousands of hurting people, strengthen the effectiveness of hun- 
dreds of churches, and equip scores of ministers for service through the 
School of Pastoral Care. 

Baptist Hospital's CareNet Counseling Centers provide a statewide, faith- 
based counseling network that extends the ministry of churches. Pastors are 
the largest single referral source, and members of Baptist churches are the 
largest group being served. Through 22 locations we will provide nearly 
23,000 hours of pastoral counseling in 2004. Thanks to Cooperative Missions 
Giving, counseling that shares Christ's compassion and hope is made afford- 
able and subsidized for those who need assistance. 

The Center for Congregational Health, with the support of North Carolina 
Baptists, provides three vital ministries that enhance the effectiveness of 
churches. The Center is strengthening 25 churches per month through con- 
sultation services, assisting churches with strategic planning, team develop- 
ment, and conflict resolution. Leadership development programs are train- 
ing 20 ministers per month, strengthening these clergy for more effective 
service. The Center has trained nearly 1,400 pastors as interim ministers 
and intentional interim specialists. ''Touching Lives With Hope" 
The Department of Chaplaincy and Pastoral Education provides training 
in pastoral ministry to nearly 55 students per year, and extends compassion- 
ate spiritual care to patients and families through 60,000 ministry contacts. 
Our North Carolina Baptist partners, through Cooperative Missions Giving, 
allow tuition to be affordable for these ministers. Our churches reap the bene- 
fits, as pastors learn to provide high quality pastoral care in times of crises, 
deepen their own faith, and enhance their evangelism. 

ADDITIONAL HIGHLIGHTS AT NC BAPTIST HOSPITAL 
Caring for Ministers and Their Families 

• N.C. Baptist ministers and their families receive a subsidy of up to 25% on

tient Service Fund, with support from the Mother's Day Offering as needed. 
An average of $60,369 per year has been provided during the last five years. 

• Our CareNet Counseling Centers, in partnership with the Baptist State Con-

CLOSING WORDS FROM THE PRESIDENT 

The compassionate, healing ministry of Christ continues to be realized in 

remarkable ways at North Carolina Baptist Hospital. We are profoundly 

thankful for the privilege of serving Christ by serving others through these 

ministries of growth, hope, and healing. We are deeply grateful to North

A memorial fund was set up in his memory to benefit our Bus Fund and we 
received many contributions. The Maria Wyatt Trust Fund came to a close

generous gift. These two funds helped us purchase a 29 passenger bus that

Our Revival services were held with Rev. C. Perry Malphrus as guest 
speaker. We also held a marriage enrichment seminar this year for couples.

annual deep-sea fishing this year. Our pastor started discipleship training this 
year with five classes meeting each week. Our pastor also received his Mas- 
ter of Theology degree from Andersonville Theological Seminary. We spon- 
sored Yokefellow with a mission project each month and was very success- 
ful. We raised a "mile of pennies" for the N.C. Baptist Children's Home and 
what a task that was. We had a lot of fun ! Our youth department is growing 
each week and they are looking to establish a praise band in the coming 
months. Our Brotherhood and WOM had great times together this year ac- 
complishing many mission projects. Our pianist retired this year after many 
years of loyal service and the Church observed "Aletha Craven Day" cele- 
brating together God's wonderful hand on this great and humble servant. Our 
Seniors took several trips together this year in part to Lynne Searcy's efforts 
and they enjoyed much fellowship together. As you can see God truly 
blessed us this year and we give Him all the praise.

Camp Creek 

Camp Creek Baptist Church has had a busy but blessed year. The 
church and fellowship building received a new roof. The ladies and men's 
restroom were redone with new fixtures. The ladies restroom floors and 
walls were painted and a new vanity was installed. 

Vacation Bible School was held July 19th through July 23rd with 
"Rickshaw Rally" as our theme. The church helped several organizations 
during the church year. In August, paper products were collected and given 
to Hospice. Food products were collected for Yokefellow in October. In 
November 30 stockings were filled for the Salvation Army to give to needy 
children at Christmas time. Also, in November, the church collected pennies 
(Mile of Pennies) for the Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina. The 
church visited Fair Haven Nursing Home in December and gave Kleenex to 
each resident. 

The youth have been very busy working for the Lord this year - 
from keeping the earth beautiful, to helping those in need, to presenting pro- 
grams, and of course, enjoying the beauty of the earth which the Lord has so 
richly blessed us. 

Camp Creek Youth have been very actively involved with their 
Adopt-a-Highway commitment adopting Camp Creek Road from Centennial 
Road to the church - a total of three miles to pick up trash five times annu- 
ally, recycling the aluminum cans. Held four benefit breakfasts, a hot-dog 
sale and a yard sale to raise $1500 for four youth to go to Camp Infuge in 
Tennessee in July where they worked for the needy — putting on new roofs 
and repairing homes. They also visited the projects and interacted with the 
children there, sharing Jesus' love to all. Also sent one younger youth along 
with the pastor to South Mountain Christian Camp. 

In June the youth joined with the youth of Bostic FBC and presented 
a youth program to the churches. Also in June held a "True Love Waits" 
ceremony and four youth signed commitment cards. We stand behind our 
youth in their commitments to abstinence. Youth enjoyed picnic at Lake 
Lure and a ride on the lake tour bus, also a swim party and picnic at Western 
Carolina Center's Beach Park.

ful missions oriented program planned and put into action by our own church 
members. Sid and Dot Shelton have moved into the Jeremiah House and are 
attracting a great number of unchurched area young people into our Youth 
Program. Their home is open for Youth activities and for Sunday School. 
The Youth took a Mission Trip to Mobile, Alabama in July. 

Fellowship - No report 

Forest City First 

First Baptist Church of Forest City was organized in 1848 for the 
purpose of advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, gathering together for wor- 
ship and fellowship, and educating and equipping each member for effective 
witnessing and ministry. This is a chronicle of those ministries, community 
events, and mission efforts designed to accomplish our purpose. 

Children's activities focus on learning about Jesus, ministry, and 
fellowship. Children participated in the GRBA Bible Drill and in our Family 
Ministry Week. There was also the annual Easter egg hunt, Children's Music 
Week at Wingate University, a bowling party to collect school supplies for 
needy children, and the Fall Festival. On March 7 we dedicated the new pre- 
school building. 

The Youth Department participated in a Passport mission project in 
Louisville, KY. In addition, there was a ski trip, a Super Bowl party, a trip to 
Carowinds, a dance-a-thon to benefit a local child through St. Jude Chil- 
dren's Hospital, Youth Music Week at Fort Caswell, and the Live Nativity at 
Christmas. Graduating seniors were honored with a banquet and baccalaure- 
ate service. 

Our adult Sunday classes held a number of fundraisers during the 
year, including the sale of Christmas poinsettias, Easter lilies, Mother's Day 
roses, and Father's Day carnations. For adults and youth, we spent "7 Weeks 
of Discovery" to focus on a Purpose-Driven Life. 

Senior adults are very active at FBC. The Living Longer and Liking 
It group (LLL) holds a monthly program and covered-dish luncheon, and the 
Thursday Club meets monthly for games, food, and fellowship. There were 
also trips to the Pisgah Inn and the Flat Rock Playhouse. Seniors are very 
active in numerous ministry teams at FBC. Finally, the staff served them an 
exquisite Valentine's Banquet and provided entertainment. 

The Music Ministry is well supported, with a full graded choir pro- 
gram for everyone from birth to senior adults. In addition to the summer 

82 



music weeks for children and youth already mentioned, there was the Youth 
Handbell Festival, Adult Handbell Festival, and Youth Choir Festival. At 
Christmas we combined with choirs from First Presbyterian Church and First 
United Methodist Church to present an Advent Carol Service. These same 
churches joined at Easter for a series of Holy Week services. Several of our 
adult choir participated in a concert at Carnegie Hall in NYC. We were 
blessed with a concerts by the Voices of Appalachia from Alice Lloyd Col- 
lege and the R.S. Middle School choruses. 

On the mission field, we provide opportunities through WMU and 
Baptist Men. A group of men painted our own preschool building, and the 
WMU collected soup labels for the Yancey County Baptist Association for a 
van for their Hispanic ministry and shoe boxes for Franklin Graham's Christ- 
mas Mission. Our congregation participated in the Faithworks Coalition to 
raise money for a Habitat for Humanity house, and several of our members 
donated construction labor. Messengers attended meetings of the BSCNC 
and CBF, and we contributed to Lottie Moon and Annie Armstrong offer- 
ings. This summer we participated in a Family Ministry Week to minister to 
the needs in our community. Our own Richard Mauney serves in Romania, 
and Jeremy and Courtney Adams spent this summer as a missionaries in Slo- 
vakia. In addition to contributing to Yokefellow Ministries and participating 
with the Parish Nurse program, our congregation supported Operation Santa 
Claus for residents of Broughton Hospital and Christmas Cheer stockings for 
children. Finally, we host the Friendship Club, an after-school program for 
students from Forest City Elementary School. 

As a church fellowship, there are a number of annual activities that 
we enjoy, including the Fall Festival, men's golf outing, Thanksgiving and 
Christmas banquets, Easter egg hunt, baby dedication on Mother's Day, bac- 
calaureate service for seniors, and 4 th of July picnic. (Due to renovations, our 
4 th of July picnic was postponed.) Finally, there were opportunities for com- 
munity worship, including the Thanksgiving Service on the Square, the Ad- 
vent Carol Service, and Holy Week services.

sales, auction with items being made and donated by our church family. 
Church voted to start a restructure in Ministry team concept for church 
instead of traditional committees. We will have a worship, fellowship, 
outreach/evangelism, discipleship, mission and administrative team. 
This new concept allows church members to choose what area they are 
truly talented in to serve God. 

Church changed from total traditional adult Sunday School to choices of 
Marriage Enrichment, Spiritual Growth, in depth study of the Bible plus 
two traditional Sunday School classes. 

Our church hosted Blood Drives several times this past year through our 
Parrish Nursing program. 

Long Branch Road 

September the 14 th was the day chosen to honor our emergency workers 
and remember all those that lost their lives during the September 11, 2001 
tragedy. Several firefighters, policemen, and EMS workers were thanked for 
all they give to protect us, following the service we had a covered dish lunch-

Service that was held at Shiloh. Nov. 30 th was the Hanging of the Greens to

December was as always a very special time for all of us. As usual

the church. We had poinsettias in the church in memory and in honor of our 
loved ones. The choir gave us a beautiful program of music and the youth of 
the church performed a play for our enjoyment. 

In March we all celebrated Grace's birthday (it is so hard to believe that if 
Greg and Jennifer had followed the treatment prescribed by a doctor as op- 
posed to the plan of God — we would not even have her) again we give thanks 
for the grace of God. We are also thankful for the trust Greg and Jennifer 
displayed in the face of some medical personnel to lay their trust in God. 

Our Vacation Bible School was a success this year and as always the vol- 
unteers made sure everyone had a good time and were well fed. 

The next major event for our church this year was homecoming. Home- 

84

tory of our church we had a covered dish lunch, worship service and singing.

tunities. 

Our Pastor, Rick Brewer, was elected to serve on the General Board 
of the NCSBC, and he has just completed a three year term as President of 
the Minister's Conference for Green River Association. This year has seen 
the beginning of a major renovation of the fellowship hall, with the addition 
of a new Sunday School classroom. We had the honor of performing the 
ordination of Stephen Matheny as he was serving as our music minister but 
was called to be pastor of New Bethel Baptist Church. 

We enjoyed our first paid youth pastor as an interim this summer 
and after his term was up, the church voted to begin the search of a part-time 
youth pastor. 

We enjoyed many special services this year. Dr. Steve Roy was 
invited for revival. We celebrated a Faith Freedom Fund Sunday, and took 
up a love offering for their good work. On June 1 1, a youth choir from FBC

also re-modeled the pastors study with new leather couches and furni- 
ture. The church purchased 30 acres of land behind our fellowship hall

ald Owens, Rev. Shane Duncan, Rev. Brent Frady, Rev. Albert Teague,

as Deacon. Chris Francis and Philip McMahan were ordained as new 
Deacons on September 26, 2004. Attendance in Bible study and worship 
services continue to improve. 

Rock Springs 

This has been a year of outstanding growth, happiness, broadening of our 
church programs and eager anticipation for the future. Our music pro- 
gram, through the talented direction of Mr. Robin Lattimore, has broad- 
ened into a mil choir, handbells, horn section, and interpretive dance and 
has richly blessed our services. Everyone looks forward with eager an- 
ticipation to the next service. Our children/youth programs, first under 
the able direction of Mrs. Rebekah Lattimore and later under the talented 
guidance of Mr. Rodney Lattimore, ahs blessed us all. October 29 we 
had our annual "Trunk-or-Treat", many trips and retreats during the year 
for our children/youth. The Christmas Musical "A Day In The Country" 
was presented by the children/youth and directed by Mrs. Rebekah Latti- 
more. Rock Springs was blessed by the gift of a Clavinova Keyboard 
which has enhanced our worship experience. Those who graciously 
gave to make this instrument possible were from our church family. The 
Interpretive Team and Horn Ensemble presented our call to worship on 
Palm Sunday. The Service of Shadows (Tenebrae) with the choir and 
handbells was observed at dusk on Good Friday. Our Easter morning 
tradition, sunrise service, breakfast and worship service were celebrated 
by all. Our annual Youth Sunday was observed April 25. Josh Gettys 
was the guest speaker. He has served our Association Resort Ministry in 
the Chimney Rock and Lake Lure area. The children/youth choir and 
Drama Team blessed us with the musical "Father Knows Best" directed 
by Mr. Rodney Lattimore. We had our ham suppers and, as always, they 
were a great success. We made lots of improvements during the year. 
We had the pews padded, opened up the foyer to allow more space and 
to become wheel chair accessible and enlarged the stage in the sanctu- 
ary. The study course "The Purpose Driven Life" was taught by Mr. Ed 
Foshie. The great tragedy we suffered at the beginning of May, with the 
passing of Rebekah Lattimore, was extremely painful to all of us as indi- 
viduals and as a church. We cannot ever forget the joy she brought to us 
all. It has caused all of us to draw closer as a church. We have all 
joined arms and are looking eagerly to the future. We feel this is the 
greatest tribute that we can give her.

We are approaching a landmark in the history of any church, our 1 00th year 
celebration. We have enjoyed this year, a time of mission work, through our 
state, home and foreign mission giving. We have been involved with Opera- 
tion Christmas Child and other projects throughout the year. Our youth were 
able to once again enjoy the facilities of Fort Caswell and our children had 
overnight and day camps. Our Vacation Bible School was tremendous and 
we praise the Lord for all the hard work so many put it. Our Senior Adults 
made a wonderful trip to the Biltmore House and we look forward to many 
others. Sunday School is a top priority and this year we look for growth as 
God continues to bless us with great teachers. The choir has done a great job 
this past year with Christmas, Easter and other special season cantatas. Keith 
Ezell, our music minister, is doing a great job with our choir and youth and 
children. 

West Memorial Baptist Church 

Reconciliation, God's Wave Of Opportunity 

It has been another interesting year here at West Memorial! We 
have built a year's theme around Reconciliation, God's Wave Of Opportu- 
nity. Reconciliation means to make things friendly, or to change from en- 
mity to friendship, to reconcile. That was our goal throughout the church 
year. We began the year off Finding the Wave as we researched our realm of 
reconciliation. In December through February we Received our role of Rec- 
onciliation as we sought to Board the Wave; March through May we learned 
what it meant to Retrieve our responsibility of Reconciliation as we, together 
as a church, caught that wave and found ourselves Riding the Wave of Rec- 
onciliation all the way to June through August when we learned the impor- 
tance of Restoring our Relationships by Reconciliation as the year came to a 
close and we Finished the Wave. Much happened here at WMC and once 

95 



again, I believe that the year's challenges were well received and taken to 
heart as members experienced what reconciliation is all about! 

During the course of the year, a new ministry was born. Under the 
supervision of the Chief Shepherd, Alan Prescott felt led by the Spirit of God 
to start a Children's Church Ministry. The Noah's Park "Park Patrol" is 
made up of 3 rd grade to 5 th grade students. They are used to assist the teacher 
in ministering to the kids 3 years to 2 nd grade. The Park Patrol members are 
used to perform puppet skits, to sing praises, and carry out administrative 
duties of ministry. The ministry is founded upon strict discipleship and dedi- 
cation to the Lord Jesus Christ. The "Park Patrol" members are required to 
attend practices. At the practices Scripture reading is a privilege of member- 
ship. 

Park trips, Women's trips, Men's trips, an awesome Lava, Lava 
Island VBS, Baptisms, Salvations, and a lot of fellowship were all a part of 
what we shared this past year as a church family. Eva Reeves was honored 
with plaque commemorating her over thirty years of service to the Sunday 
School Department. We welcomed Isaiah Gibson as our new Minister of 
Youth along with his wife, Kim Gibson. They have been very active in pro- 
viding encouraging Bible growth and fellowship at WMC for our youth and 
we are very fortunate to have Mr. Gibson as our Youth Minister! 

WMC's Sanctuary received a much needed fresh coat of paint this 
year, and our young children got a new swing set! 

It has been a busy year, and we are all looking forward with antici- 
pation to catching that next wave here at WMC! 

West Point 

In continuation of our evangelistic efforts, our church year began with our 
eighth semester of FAITH Sunday School Evangelism Strategy being held 
September 2 — November 4, 2003. Our ninth semester of FAITH was held 
February 22 — May 18, 2004 with our tenth semester beginning August 29, 
2004. Vacation Bible School was held May 30 — June 4, 2004 with an aver- 
age of 1 14 in attendance. Our church also helped to provide Vacation Bible 
School for Mountains Community Church July 18-23, 2004. West Point 
hosted the Mountain State Fair Ministry on September 15, 2003. As an addi- 
tional outreach, our church reserved the movie theater on February 28, 2004 
for one showing of "The Passion of the Christ". Individual church members 
bought the tickets and invited any unsaved/unchurched friends or acquaintan- 
ces to come for this showing. An invitation was given and many decisions 
for Christ were made. The Celebration Choir presented to the community the 
musical, "It Took a Lamb" at R-S Middle School on April 4, 2004, as well as 
led the music during Revival at Grays Creek Baptist Church on April 12, 
2004. 

In December 2003, South African native Anton Roos, Jr. was sponsored by 
Pastor Tim to attend Fruitland Baptist Bible Institute in Hendersonville. He 
has a wife, Lilani and two children, Tristen and Nicola. The contact with 
Anton cam about as a result of West Point's involvement in missions in 

96 



South Africa over the last three years. The church then took on the Roos 
family as a mission project by helping provide them a house and furnishings 
and by supporting them financially on a monthly basis. Since his arrival to 
Rutherford County, Anton has been licensed by West Point Church to the 
Gospel ministry, supply preached in a number of churches and then in may of 
2004 he was called as pastor of Mountains Community Church in Lake Lure. 
West Point ordained him and in June entered into a partnership with Moun- 
tains Community Church to assist them in their growth as a church. Partner- 
ship Celebration Services were held with Mountains Community on June 27 
and September 26, 2004. 

Several special services and events took place during the year. On April 24, 
2004 our 2nd Annual Johnny Hill Fund Raising Auction was held with pro- 
ceeds going toward our building project. Revival, with Gary Dedmon from 
Missouri, was held September 28 — October 2, 2003. We were proud to or- 
dain one of our newly elected Deacons, Neal Moore, in an Ordination Ser- 
vice held March, 28, 2004. A Christian Financial Seminar was held May 23, 
2004. For our families with newborn babies, a Baby Dedication Service was 
held May 9, 2004. 

Our Children's Ministry and Youth Ministry were awesome this year. Each 
group had various functions held throughout the year. The Children's Choir 
gave several musical presentations for many of our worship services. One 
event the children look forward to each year is the "Thanksgiving Day Cele- 
bration" where they experience many of the same activities that took place 
with the Pilgrims. Our youth attended many functions, as well as having 
their weekly group meetings with Bible Study and fellowship time. They 
attended "Winterfest" at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia Decem- 
ber 30, 2003— January 1, 2004, "Winter Jam" on February 20; Youth Re- 
vival at Second Baptist Church on March 26 and 27, 2004; and attended 
Camp Caswell August 2-7, 2004. All age groups within the church enjoyed 
the many events for growing in fellowship with one another. Homecoming 
was held on August 22, 2004. 

Work continues on our new building project to accommodate the steady 
growth of the church body.
